Changes to MyAccount

Why is there a 'new' MyAccount?

The old MyAccount has been replaced to allow us to improve our digital services.

Our new and old MyAccounts ran alongside each other for a period of two months to allow our residents to sign up to the new account.

The old MyAccount is no longer available, so if you are a resident of the Borough you will now only be able to access the new MyAccount.

Why do I need access to MyAccount?

You will need access to the new MyAccount so you can:

  • View your Council Tax account
  • View your Housing Benefit account
  • Report environmental or waste problems.

I'm using my password for my OLD MyAccount to log in to my NEW MyAccount but it's not letting me login

User details from the old MyAccount have not been transferred over to the new MyAccount. Residents of the borough will be required to register for a new MyAccount.
