The payment counter at Birtley housing office will be closing from 30 September 2016.
This means you will not be able to pay your rent, Council Tax or other payments at the housing office.
However, the housing team will remain at Birtley, so customers can continue to access services at the office, by phone or online.
There is still a wide range of ways for you to pay your rent, which are listed below.
For more information email Birtley housing office or call 0191 433 6102.
