Blaydon_housing_office_altThe payment counter at Blaydon housing office will be closing from 28 October 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 Blaydon, 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.
