Breckland Council is switching to one main customer contact number – 01362 656 870 – with new, simple touch-tone options to make it quicker and more convenient for customers to contact us.
These changes are being introduced from Monday (12 December 2016), so from this date we will only be promoting ‘one number for Breckland’.
By investing in touch-tone technology, the Council aims to not only improve its customer service, but also to work more efficiently by making better use of officer time and council resources.
For the time-being, all other existing customer contact numbers (Eg: Housing or Council Tax) will continue to work, but will be phased out by 1 April 2017.
Please note: Direct dial numbers for individual officers remain unaffected by the changes we are making to our main contact number.
