Any incoming post for North East Lincolnshire Council can be sent to North East Lincolnshire Council, Municipal Offices, Town Hall Square, Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, DN31 1HU

Any item of incoming postage that has been held as undeliverable due to insufficient postage paid will not be collected by North East Lincolnshire Council. Any item will remain in possession of the external postal service used by the sender until such a time that the sender pays all outstanding postage fees. Whilst the external postage service has any items in their possession all accountability for loss, damage, theft rests with them and as such any associated queries/correspondence should also be directed to the external postal service. North East Lincolnshire Council would highly recommend that items of value are never sent through the post, if sending by post cannot be avoided then items should be sent by recorded delivery.
