Update 25 March 2021 – payment line and online forms

In addition to the long queues on the telephone lines, we are still having problems with external calls, online forms and the payment line. We are working to fix the problem as soon as we can.

North East Lincolnshire Council’s customer contact centre is dealing with an unprecedented number of calls this week.
