Our Aims

To provide fair access for all of our customers whether this be to view our registers or to process a full or part search enquiry, ensuring at all times that the Council can still undertake its statutory duties.

We will continually review our policies and procedures in attempting to meet the changing demand both in the market place and as our technology evolves.

To deliver our service in a manner that allows us to fairly apportion our time between all of our customers requirements.
