    Consumer Complaint

    We would always advise that in the event of a complaint the first contact is made with the trader by you - preferably in the form of a letter (with proof of delivery). If that has not worked, if you are located in the UK, Citizen's Advice will give you advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre.

    Other Redress

    Eg about noise, pollution, etc.  Also should one licence holder complain about another. Please contact the Licensing Section on 01785 619745 in the first instance.
