The council is reaching out to residents to help move forward with a wide number of options in how people can engage and carry out their business 24 hours every day of the week. There are a number of options available including opening an online personal account to report issues and using the website to make payments.
A large number of residents access council services online at any time of the day and this is much more convenient for people with busy lives. Your personal ‘My Erewash’ account will allow you to pay for services, report a missed bin, apply for a council tax discount, and inform the council of a change of address and much, much more. You can also check the progress of your service request at any time for peace of mind.

The number of residents using the council’s online services has seen a dramatic increase following the pandemic and will continue to help shape services going forward to meet our residents’ needs. This has also had an impact on the council’s receptions with a dramatic fall in people visiting and as a result new opening hours will be in place from week starting 3 July 2023.
