See what our customers think of e-Services
Moving as many customers as possible to paperless billing supports our borough's ambitious plans to reduce our carbon footprint -
As well as helping the environment, paperless billing means your important Council Tax, Housing Benefit or Business Rates information is all available in e-Services to view.
If you need a copy of a document for an application, you can download a digital copy, which most organisations will prefer. If you do need a one-off print copy, we'll be happy to send you one - so you don't need to worry about not having a printer at home.
