In person

Visit the Customer Service desk at the Melbourne Town Hall - Administration Building, 120 Swanston Street Melbourne. We are open from 7.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday (public holidays excluded).

Social Media

Whilst we will attempt to assist on Social Media channels such as Twitter, Google+, Facebook etc. for simple questions or issues, please note that many matters cannot be resolved on these channels.

Most issues require far more detail than is possible or able to be supplied on these channels. It is also our policy to respect the privacy of information shared with us. The City of Melbourne views the protection of your privacy as an integral part of its commitment towards complete accountability and integrity in all its activities and programs.

A tweet may appear to be convenient for some, but not all issues can be resolved in 140 characters, Nor is it appropriate to expect us to resolve all matters with limited information or ability to investigate or respond appropriately.

Please help us resolve matters effectively by using the contact methods noted on this page, which will allow us to log issues effectively, assign, track, and follow up with you, and close issues to the best of our ability by using these methods.

Contacting us anonymously

Where possible, you have the option of not identifying yourself when entering into a transaction with the City of Melbourne.

However, there may be instances where this is not feasible. For example, there is no requirement for an individual to identify themselves if they just want to report an incident (e.g. a toilet block maintained by City of Melbourne requires cleaning).

However, if an individual contacts the City of Melbourne because they want a new rubbish bin – we are unable to provide the new bin without knowing the person’s name and address.

Evaluating and improving our performance

As part of our commitment to customer service, we may periodically invite you to provide feedback about your experience via a survey. Any survey is voluntary and you do not have to participate.
