Customer Service

Call Centre 9936 8100

Many customers are unable to visit Customer Service Centre, so Council offers an extensive Call Service Centre: 9936 8100, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm and after hours.

Our aim is to provide our telephone customers with a high level of service by ensuring we can answer the majority of your questions at the first point of contact on the phone. Where this is not possible, your call will be transferred to another Council Officer. If not available, your request will either be forwarded to the Officer via our Customer Action Request Form or by email to council@northsydney.nsw.gov.au

To ensure staff can comprehensively answer your enquiry, our Call Centre staff will ask for your full details to pass on.
