Changes to WDH’s services at Normanton Service Access Point (SAP)21 September 2016

Published 21 September 2016
The way that people access our services is changing. Over the last few years there has been a reduction in the number of people using our Service Access Points (SAPs) and an increase in people self-serving and completing transactions online. It is because of these changes that we will be closing Normanton SAP on Friday 30 September 2016.
