Brentwood Borough Council has tried to make this site easy for anyone to use, from experienced Internet users to complete beginners, but if you are stuck, this section is here to help you.
Getting around the site:
The start page is known as the home page. This website has been divided into 4 home pages: I am a Resident; I am a Business; My Council and News. The default home page is the I am a Resident home page. From these pages you will be able to access all of the sections of this site.
By clicking on the brentwood.gov.uk logo at the top of each page will get you back to the start page.
Each home page is divided into several areas: top tasks, lead story, main sections, search, A-Z search and the Council's contact details.
From the Main Sections of the website you will be able to find most of the information contained within the site. The main sections are then subdivided into additional sections, which are displayed on the right hand side of the page. These sections are often subdivided again. If you go to the wrong page use the Back button on your browser or use the Main Sections listed at the foot of each page.
You can search from any page of the site by typing a word to look for the information you need in specific areas of the site. This will link you directly to the area you specify.
Council's contact details
The Council's main contact details are displayed at the foot of every page. On line contact can be made via the links provided under the heading Contact Us.
At the top of the home pages are the most important Council news stories of the day.
