What we do

    Media Relations - we work with local, regional and national organisations across a range of media - from providing simple confirmation of a council decision, to organising television or radio interviews. We handle around 300 press enquiries a year.

    External Communications - More than 100 press releases are issued every year and published on the web. We help prepare community campaigns, such as dog fouling and grimewatch and assist in the production of a range of publications. We are responsible for developing and maintaining this website.

    Social Media - we manage the council's social media platforms.

    Internal Communications - We deliver key messages through the Intranet. Development and maintenance of our internal web pages are also a function of the team.

    Filming and Photography - We can't give permission to film unless it is on council owned property. But we can give advice on filming and photography in the borough. Contact Will on the details below.
