Getting in touch with Calderdale Council will soon be cheaper for many people, as the council’s Contact Centre moves from 0845 numbers to a local 01422 dialling code.

From Monday May 12, the new local contact numbers will go live, and will be available for all customers.

The new numbers will be: General Enquiries - 01422 288001; Street Care - 01422 288002; Finance - 01422 288003; Gateway to Care - 01422 393000; Emergency Out of Hours - 01422 288000

Calderdale Council’s director of communities and business change, Robin Tuddenham, said: “A lot of residents have told us they don’t like 0845 numbers.

“We have listened to their concerns and have done all we can to make our council services more accessible,” added Mr Tuddenham.
