Without leaving home
Huneljot Grewal, Southall resident, said: “My Account has made the process of interacting with the council so much faster and easier, and the great thing is you only have to register once.
“With these new environment services added, I can report and request most of the common things I would normally have called the council about online. I can do business with the council my own way without having to leave home.”
