The Council has a small number of in-house translators who may be able to assist with general enquiries at the Customer Service Centre and in reception areas. This service is limited and the languages available are Gujarati, Punjabi, Bengali, Urdu, French and Arabic.

When we cannot provide an interpreter in-house for your language, or if the interview is of a complex or lengthy nature we may buy in professional interpreters from other agencies and these would be arranged by the officer dealing with you. Alternatively the Council can also access the Language Line facility for telephone enquiries or for visitors to the Customer Service Centre (i.e. main reception), who need an interpreter to help make their enquiry.

For other languages or for longer and more detailed enquiries it may be necessary to make an appointment, to arrange this please telephone 01509 634560.
