Travelling to County Hall
As part of its commitment to 'Green Travel' the County Council is actively seeking to reduce the number of cars travelling to County Hall. All visitors and staff are requested to consider the alternatives - Our Travelling to County Hall page provides information on alternatives including cycling facilities and bus services as well as nearby accommodation.
Please note: A comprehensive listing of contact details for all County Council services is available through the A-Z listing or search facility. Contact details for your local County Councillor are available in Councillors web pages
On the left hand side of every page is a menu which lists the section you are in and the categories within that section. These categories can be clicked on to view information.
To assist you with moving back and forth between the pages there is a "bread crumb" trail at the top of each page - this starts with 'You are in:....' so you can see the path you have followed to reach your destination and use it to revisit previous pages, (or you may prefer to use your web browser's back button or use the alt key + back arrow on your keyboard.)
The information in this website is divided up into 8 main sections:
- Democracy & Community
- Children & Families
- Culture & Tourism
- Economy & Business
- Environment & Planning
- Learning & Schools
- Social Care & Health
- Transport & Roads
