Their housing team is utterly corrupt, full of liars, they don’t follow their own procedures, ignore official complaints that state clearly response should be forthcoming in 3 days and play constant games. Disgusting. …

The ancient city government building of Sheffield, the building with the same ancient history of this beautiful city, in the luxurious Victorian style, Mr. David welcomed and received me with all friendliness

Just a useless organisation, incapable of updating their council tax records despite doing it numerous times online. Tried to ring to rectify the error but stuck in a queue for hours. Can’t even spell our names correctly on the council tax …

Completely incompetent and useless. Unfortunately it’s one of those organisations that it’s inevitable to deal with as much as you try to avoid them. They are making my both personal and business life as inconvenient as they possibly can …

Good luck trying to speak to anyone on the phone. I’ve been hung up on 3 times so far after being on hold for over 10 minutes. This happens every time. And if you’re lucky enough to get through to someone, then chances are their ‘systems are down’ and so they can’t help. Totally shambolic and highly infuriating.

If I could score 0 I would. Absolutely incompetent, every single staff member I’ve had the ‘honour’ of dealing with. I think there’s a cap that no phone call should be answered before the customer has been on hold for 20 mins. I’ve had …

The phone system is clearly not set up for customer service. Long waits. Unhelpful staff. Onus always on the customer to deal with the delays or system issues. “You can call back later when the system might be up”. “I can’t messages, you need to call back and see if the system is back up”. etc etc

They lied to us about our council tax bill, saying we have a discount applied. We are now receiving letters saying we owe £400 and we have to pay within 2 weeks. The staff have no remorse whatsoever. Horrible people, you can only get through when you owe them money. Get out of this city whilst you can. Frauds

I am trying to call about the council tax letters that keep coming addressed to the previous tenants to let them know that those tenants are gone and we have no way of knowing where they are. The call keeps getting cut off before I can even speak to anybody.

Impossible to contact them on the phone at times, and they don’t respond to some emails at all by choice. Plus their computer system often seems to have errors, and it’s difficult to get them to acknowledge you’ve spoken to them previously about one issue or the other.

Fire Katie Josephs. She was head of the covid task whilst at the same time breaking covid rules, hosting lavish parties on tax payer money. Now she leads the city council, and who knows what corruption she’s involved in. She needs to go.

They don’t own the city but act as if they do. They are suppose to maintain Sheffield but have ruined it. People need to STOP voting LABOUR in the Council elections because this once great city will never get better if they continue to.

This city council doesn’t work. Even if we have any query or complaints, they don’t treat well. The report on line also doesn’t work because of their web security problem. There is no way! Sheffield totally lose the function of the council.
