You pay a fortune in council tax and zero service. Apparently I have to catch a flea before I can get the house treated despite paying an extra £20 for the service. I have a broken leg at the moment so no chance of me finding and catching a …

Last Friday we took our grandson to St Mary’s Lighthouse Visitor’s Centre for their under 5’s Christmas party- games, music and dancing with Mike, then a visit from Santa and chocolate coins. It was probably the most enjoyable and best value £3.50 that we have spent during 2022! Thank you.

An absolute joke, my PVC door is completely stuck doesn’t open at all, I’ve reported it to NTC and they have booked this in to get fixed on the 4/07 so I have to wait over a month to get this solved, in the event of a fire I’m completely stuck they don’t care whatsoever.

Absolutely furious they’ve decided to change their number that my phone is blocked from ringing! Website still down since about November to pay rent online. They’ll be straight out whinging as well when the rents not paid. Nice one NTC. Just making it harder for everyone to keep up to date with payments. Absolute joke.

If I could rate them a zero I would. Made a complaint and the reply I get was that it was basically my fault that I hadn’t received letters for appointments. They then have a cheek to say that it’s important things get done then council fails to turn up for an appointment.

My wife and I have reported the amount of rubbish/fly tipping in the Chirton/New York area, public bins removed, mass amounts of dog mess etc. Seem to pay more year upon year in Council Tax but getting less and less service. Very hard to report issues to the ‘correct’ people and feels like we’re getting fobbed off.

NTC Arborist (Billie Taylor) came to my home at 8 am today to discuss the issue concerned. He was extremely helpful and friendly. He treated me, my home and my garden with respect, and listened to my problems. He is a real credit to NT Council and the wonderful team which looks after our trees and shrubbery. Thank you!

Unable to get through on telephone as usual, bin collections halved to 2 a month on normal refuse and then they don’t turn up on the designated day !. Bins bags getting ripped open by birds and generally blowing rubbish around street. This council is an absolute disgrace ….over £200 a month in council and for what ??.

As someone who does local community work on a voluntary basis, I’ve contacted the Environment Department with queries re. recycling. Each time speaking to and receiving e-mails from a Waste Management Officer called Heather Angus. Each time I’ve received polite, no-nonsense, realistic advice / guidance. Many thanks Heather.

if you want a knife in your back then apply for a job. Management are cutthroat and will stop at nothing to prevent more capable people from earning advancement. Believe me if you’re face doesn’t fit you will be made conveniently redundant regardless of how productive you are.

We have done a lot of work for N.T.C over the last few years and have found all the people involved a pleasure to work with, recently we did some works at Whitley Bay Chapel and it was great to see everyone working together to complete the job on time within budget and to a high standard a grade 2+ building deserves.

It’s a shame I have to give a 1 star rating. It deserves 0 rating. Racism is at it’s highest level. The worst Council staff I have ever worked with in the UK.
