Comments and complaints
We aim to answer 95% of all formal complaints received by letter or Customer Response Form within ten working days and emails within five working days. On occasions we experience high volumes of customer contact and may not be able to respond within our advertised targets. In these circumstances the Customer Relations team work steadily through the backlog of contacts and respond in date order.
If you contact us with a complaint relating to a service we provide that's carried out by one of our stakeholders, we will investigate the complaint with the relevant company and inform you of the outcome.
