Media resources

Working with the media team

All media and public relations is co-ordinated through the communications and marketing team based at our Headquarters. This information is intended for journalists. If you are a member of the public and have a query please:

Media enquiries

Media enquiries relating to the Council should be directed to 01835 826632 or contact us online. All other communications enquiries should be directed to 01835 826601. We are always happy to work with you and always try and get back to you with a response as soon as we can, and within your timescale.

News distribution lists

If you are a journalist you can ask to be added to our email distribution lists for news releases by contacting us. You can also receive our news via RSS, Twitter and Facebook.

If you require any images to accompany press releases, please contact us.

Getting in touch with Councillors

The media team can only provide comment on behalf of elected members in their role of an executive position in the Council. If you need a comment from a Councillor on a ward issue, then you need to contact the Councillor directly. If you need any assistance with this, we are always happy to help you get in touch with appropriate Councillor.

Freedom of information

We publish freedom of information responses on this website. If you have a query, please check this area first as it may be the information is already available. If we receive any press enquiry which we need to process as a FOI request, we will let you know and pass it onto our FOI officer.
