Complaint Policy

Our Complaints Policy details how City of Wolverhampton Council manages and responds to comments, compliments and complaints - this is available in the Downloads section on this page.

Procedure on the management of unreasonable customer behaviour

How City of Wolverhampton Council will decide which customers will be treated as unreasonable or unreasonably persistent, and what we will do in those circumstances is found here in the Unreasonable Customer Behaviour procedure in the Downloads section.

Service standards when making a complaint

You should expect to receive an acknowledgement in 4 calendar days and a response within 21 calendar days from when we received your complaint. 

If your complaint is more complex then more time may be needed to do a thorough investigation. You will be advised if more time is needed and when you can expect to receive a response from us.
