Report It is changing →

Visit ReportIT for information on what you can report to us.

MyAccount is a resident portal allowing you to view your council tax and housing benefit accounts, and report and track progress of issues you’ve raised with us.

Registering for an account is easy and takes just a couple of minutes.

You will need to register for Housing Online to view your Housing Rents account.

What services can I access?

MyAccount allows you to securely access the following range of council services:

A full programme of works is scheduled to move more services over into our MyAccount platform to ensure better user experience and outcomes. In the meantime, the following services can be accessed directly on our website:

  • Parking services - Apply for parking permits, pay a parking fine and access important information on parking regulations and parking fines, including how to appeal a parking fine
  • Pest control - Book a pest control visit
  • Registrar services - Book appointments online to register birth, give notice of marriage or civil partnership, as well as book your ceremony.
