My tenant vacated my property in August but gave the wrong date. I contacted BBC weeks ago to amend this and was told a new council tax demand would be sent out, it never arrived. My email went unanswered. I have now been on hold for 51 …

Tired as a local business of having to fight to get things done including establishing a business, including rights to advertise at local events. Highly unsupportive of this local business. I would look elsewhere to more supportive councils for business ventures.

I find it amazing how they’ve spent a fortune on a lovely office but can’t spend a penny on the potholes or staff trained enough to answer the telephones. If they were a private business they’d likely be shut down by Trading Standings due …

Sawyers hall lane was found to be the worst road in Britain on BBC watchdog, the council have built a new school within recent years down this road and cut off a main walk way from doddinghurst road. Now they have put posts up to prevent …

I & my toddler son fled domestic violence with a broken ankle, we came to brentwood Council for safety which one Devil Laura cuffie declined us help due to racist card she was playing. Brentwood Council do not help people fleeing from domestic violence.

Dealing with Brentwood Council is usually one of the worst things I have to encounter. They don’t care what your “need” is and they just try to palm you off or tell you to send an email, which is never ever answered. I find they look down …

They’re more than happy to charge for rubbish collection in the Council tax but rubbish at collecting you’re rubbish. I’ve been reporting that my rubbish has not been collected for weeks and it’s still not been taken.

Got fined £150 for missing a bin!
Didn’t realize my mistake until a council worker came and confronted me about it and proceeded to fine me £150 despite the fact I am a full time student.

I think the council should consider picking up more food recycling especially for larger households where there are more people living. I would like to suggest that 2 large food waste caddy’s be permitted for this.

I made enquiries about the location of my father’s grave by telephone and although it took a few days for someone to respond, I was given all the information I required this morning by a young woman who was very respectful, sensitive and helpful.

Possibly the most negligent council in the country for helping its most vunerable residents. Constantly caring about saving money than saving its residents in mitigating situations with their health or disabilities.

Now they need to sort the obstacle course that is William Hunter Way.

Simply don’t bother, well that’s unless you want to open a bar, bistro or build some new flats. Rude staff as usual, and will not listen to anything that you have to say.

They only time they are any good is when your paying a fine.

Customer Service is non existent. When you call in on the number they provide, they keep you on hold for 30 minutes and then just cut you off! So bad. I’d give minus stars in the review if I could.

Since they have closed the Main Shopping Area of Brentwood, it has become a ‘no go’ zone for those of us with limited walking ability, they have moved all the disabled bays to one end of the high street leaving 95% of shops out of reach – …
