An automated telephone system is being trialled by Surrey Heath Borough Council over the next six months.

The local authority said the service would offer telephone information 24 hours a day, was simple to use, and would not have a waiting queue.

A spokeswoman said it was a self-service system and customer service advisors would be available during office hours from Monday to Friday.

She added that jobs were currently not at risk.
