New Telephone Contact Number for the District Council
Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils are committed to transforming how they work with their customers.
Their focus is on moving all of their processes on-line to make them easier, quicker and more accessible for customers to use. This means that they will be trying to minimise the need for face-to-face and telephone contacts in favour of web and digital services wherever possible.
If you do need to speak directly to a member of staff they will offer you an appointment at a mutually convenient time and place.
Contact 0300 1234000 to be connected to any council service.

The job of the Council is to represent the interests of the whole community.
Parish Councils can: give views on planning applications and other proposals that affect the parish; undertake projects that benefit local residents; work in partnership with others to benefit the parish; advise relevant authorities of problems or action that is needed; and help the other tiers of local government to engage with, and understand their local communities.
Members of the public are invited to attend each meeting and time is set aside for public participation so that Felsham residents have an opportunity to speak to The Council on any matter relating to the village. This opportunity is given at the beginning of each meeting so if you raise or comment on a topic which is on the agenda for that meeting, Councillors will be able to take account of your views when that subject is discussed.
If you speak on a matter which is not on the current meeting agenda, your topic will not be discussed at that council meeting, but the Council will consider including it at a future meeting.
You can also raise suggestions, comments and matters of concern at any time with one of your Councillors or the Clerk. In this way, they can act as your voice on the council and ensure that your views are made known.
District and County Councillor, Penny Otton, attends meetings regularly.
A member of the Mid Suffolk South Safer Neighbourhood Team also regularly attends meetings or sends a written report.
