Alison Fisher, who is put in a position to deal with ordinary public’s enquiry with such aggressive and rude attitude where you are almost forbidden to raise a query. The Epitome of a council worker paid to do a job simply to humiliate, …

Trying to make a noise complaint as this is my last straw, I have completed complaint forms but cannot upload them as they are ‘aware there is a problem with the online forms’ but do not offer an alternative method to complain. I have tried calling but keep getting cut off and no email address to email them either. Useless.

I’m assuming it’s this bunch of clowns that allow the two fibre companies to did up the roads 2 weeks apart, creating total chaos! It comes to something when it’s easier to drive around Brighton at a weekend.

Website is appalling. Must have tried 30 times to renew garden waste. Most of the time can’t even log in. Can’t even access a phone number to ring and review. This is appalling for any access to services within a town

I am sitting at my PC listening to music while waiting to be connected to someone to discuss a council tax issue that can’t easily be sorted online. It’s the middle of the working day on a Tuesday, nothing special. According to my phone I …

I would put no stars but i can’t. Ever since moving up to the town hall the council have been useless. it takes over an hour to get through to anyone on the phone as there’s now no face to face. Everything is done on the phone. Bins get …

Absolutely appalling service, I’ve been trying to get a refund from my mums counsel tax as as she passed away in June. The process has been awful poor communication never do what they say they will do. If i owed them money they would be all over it immediately.

Haven’t grit the pavements or roads around Hampden park seeing as I ride a bike to work it’s dangerous, sick of councils especially this one being bone idle and doing the bare minimum when people pay a steep Council tax! Sort it out.

Absolutely appalling have moved out of eastbourne after growing up there and won’t move back after dealing with the council creating debts both against and in my favour over and over for 3 years and repeatedly threatening legal action for debts that didn’t exist.

Can’t contact them without an on line account so it’s highly discriminatory and if you get through on the phone the person who answers ends the call as soon as you have explained the problem

Appalling service. Write threatening letters and then it’s impossible to get hold of anybody to sort the issue. They always send their threatening letters to arrive on a Friday, and amazingly always state they are experiencing unexpectedly …

We pay a lot of money on council tax, so why are the bins being collected every 2 weeks? Theres more flies around eastbourne and I can smell garbage were ever I go because of this. I heard from a few people that we will be charged on …

We were delighted with such a speedy response from the Council. We had telephoned a Lib Dem local councillor and been given telephone numbers to ring for help. I am almost 85 and my wife will be 77 in December. We were handed a box of …

Moved 3 households in to 1 larger property so 6 adults and still won’t supply a 2nd refuse bin. Told you need 10 people in the property to get a 2nd bin.
With the fortnightly collection now it is causing real problems with flies and …

Horrendous experience speaking to a woman called Alison Fisher. Felt very undermined and spoke to me like a child when I asked questions. Horrid employee

Why is this Lib-Dem council allowing so many historic venues of the town to fall into disrepair? The Bandstand, The Redoubt, The Winter Gardens,The Wish Tower? Money set aside for repair of the Bandstand, for example, – £3M has ‘disapeared’! Wouldn’t recommend this council at all.

The first impression when calling a council that serves a community as large as Eastbourne and Lewes is key. The EL switchboard service needs an urgent review. Extensions for all staff checked as many are no longer in service. Being left …

All I can say is that the bin men that collected recycling 25th May are lazy. My glass placed at side of bin but not taken as unfortunately box it was in (cardboard as my plastic box is mislaid) had got wet in rain. They were unable to lift …

Trying to get to talk to a human being is virtually impossible and for some reason I cannot renew my brown bin collection because the website won’t let me – despite having done so for many years now. Total frustration with this lot.

I’ve just spoke on the phone with Shantele because I miscalculated when I had to pay my council tax and she was the most helpful person I have spoken to so far. If anyone that works at this council sees this, I think she’s earned a raise.

Was supposed to have an arranged monthly payment with them and payments were ignored and then the tax was shot up from £300 to £1430. Love finding ways to screw you over

The worst council ever!!! They ask you to pay council tax, you pay and they completely ignore your payments, leading to charging you extra fees for not paying!! The most ridiculous system I have ever experienced!

It is with great sadness that I see a city collapsing, slowly losing all its former potential, stores closing, storefronts broken and many people sleeping in the streets, but it looks like a city closing its doors and with very little p …
