Your help

You can help by reporting enviro-crimes where you come across information, by reporting Blue Badge misuse or report fraud so that we can investigate. 

We will also take action where needed from a planning perspective. If you suspect that there has been a breach of planning control that we need to investigate, please contact us. You can also report problems and raise concerns.
