New Features add to F&HDC “MyAccount” Service

More functions are to be added to “MyAccount” on the Folkestone and Hythe District council website this week – making things simpler for residents and business owners when contacting the council.

It’s a great time to join the thousands of people who’ve already signed up to the online system, and enjoyed easier and quicker interactions with Folkestone & Hythe District Council ever since.

Regulatory services will be among those added:

·         Licensing;

·         Private sector housing;

·         Environmental health;

·         Food hygiene;

·         Health and safety;

·         Environmental protection.

The additions will mean you can fill out online forms and make payments for the same transaction – something that hasn’t been possible before in some instances. Previously, some forms have had to be printed out and filled out manually.

MyAccount allows residents to see the information relevant to them all in one place – such as bin collections, local councillors, benefits and council tax. More than 8,000 people have registered since it was first launched in August.
