‘No-Cold-Calling Zones

The ongoing crackdown on rogue traders and uninvited doorstep sellers in Suffolk has continued with the launch of the county’s latest No-Cold-Calling Zone in Felixstowe.

The Zones (NCCZs) are set up in areas where residents have identified they do not want visits from unsolicited or 'cold' callers. The zones are created in partnership with the county council’s Trading Standards team, the police, neighbourhood watch and local residents, and are marked with signs in the street and stickers displayed in residents’ windows.  For consideration as a potential NCCZ, residents can contact Suffolk Trading Standards by emailing trading.standards@suffolk.gov.uk. Anyone requiring free advice about any consumer issue, including doorstep traders, can contact Consumer Direct on 08454 04 05 06.
