Frequently Asked Questions

Access to Council services:

The decision to relocate to both Honiton and Exmouth provides the council with a unique opportunity to operate from its largest towns.

While this will be the new headquarters, the service will continue to deliver customer access through its use of surgeries which already operate in Axminster, Cranbrook, Honiton and Seaton.  The council will also look to provide services across the District and as always we will keep customer demand under review in order to be flexible to meet changing demand where required. We also continue to offer home visits to customers who would prefer. Our online services will be expanded and on-site self-service options are also available for users at the new site.

Housing staff will mainly be based in Exmouth, but we will have a staff presence in Honiton and continue to undertake much of our business by way of home visits, site visits and by utilising our community centres throughout the district for tenants’ meetings and other instances.

Our Exmouth office address is: Exmouth Town Hall, St Andrews Road, Exmouth EX8 1AW
