A NEW pilot scheme is being launched this month to help local people access North Devon Council information from their own street.From Tuesday, May 12, representatives from the council's customer service centre will be going out with the county's mobile library service to answer queries on environmental health, parking, planning and recruitment, as well as offer guidance on other service issues. Customer service centre manager, Emma Ingle, said: "We already operate from three sites in Barnstaple, Ilfracombe and South Molton. "However, this initiative will help us to get into the heart of communities that may otherwise find it difficult to meet us face-to-face. "So, whether it's to ask a question or make a comment about a council service, this scheme means more people will be able to talk to us and access information."The customer service centre will go out with the mobile library for six weeks. Stop-offs include Molland, Welland, Bishop's Nympton, Atherington, Fremington and Rackenford. A full list can be found at www.northdevon.gov.ukCustomers can continue to access the customer service centre on (01271) 327711, or in person at the civic centre in Barnstaple.
