I have been trying for over a month now to pay my council tax bill. Their online account/payment service is the most backward system I have ever encountered, and not fit for purpose. I contact the council, and they fob me off with half an …

Well done for ruining the city centre with your new stupid prices and hours! Most car parks have changed from 6pm to 10pm ruining late night economy and the prices for parking are ridiculous. Over £5 for or a few hours. Exeter business guild need to get to grips with the council

I hadn’t received my letter regarding the council tax rebate by the end of June so called to check on the status of this. Jenny was extremely helpful and sorted it out personally within an hour, very friendly and extremely swift and helpful!

I have to go to this place once a year in regard to my rent rising. Usually it is dealt with simply, swiftly and politely, but a couple of times in the last few years I’ve been treated as if I was making an unreasonable request, kept …

Just spent the last 8 minutes calling the council, a total of 21 minutes today and the same as I did on Monday and Tuesday and no one answered the call. This is not a complaint, just warning people what to expect when trying to contact the …

I’ve always found the staff on the Council Tax team to be very helpful and understanding; however, whoever is in charge has decided that they won’t open the phone lines on a Tuesday. Genius.

Exeter City Council customer service. Whether I leave a one star or five star review is somewhat irrelevant since to comment on the customer service is to imply that it exists. It doesn’t. I contacted ECC via their website on 18/12/21. An …

Exeter City Council , you give them big council tax and they have bigger wages than you , if its services you want do it yourself as they are not interested…

Why have you all not gone back to work, you are local government offices, and as such, should be setting an example and going into work. Trying to get hold of anyone is so frustrating. …

Having been a resident for 30+ years, nothing changes with this organisation from an experience perspective; yes they offer services, but ultimately if you had a choice would you use them? – quite blatantly what I and others I speak too …

Elderly social care forget it my application has just disappeared into oblivion. They sent this social worker round as soon as he got out of his car he said I would not get anything before he even read my application. This council will leave you alone to die then make up their own story to cover it up

IF you are a student or tourist, between them ECC & DCC can’t do enough for you. Every penny of public money is spent on attractions and shopping in the city centre. If you’re unfortunate enough to actually live in Exeter outside of the …

A nightmare to get a hold of. Bounced constantly from person to person while on the phone. Spent more time on hold than actually being helped. Left my details for a call back but never received. Utter joke… Appalling.

Depends entirely on who you get to speak to. Some council staff (Hi Julie, Christine) are helpful and friendly, but others are belligerent and unpleasant; need re-training in how to speak to the people they are supposed to be serving in a respectful manner.

Useless. Three failed calls to environmental health (the line went dead each time), wasting a load of my time holding on the calls.
Must do better.

I was mistakingly under the impression that a council is supposed to improve things and work for the people it represents – all this council seemingly does is think of new ways to essentially extort additional funds for it’s coffers…..
