    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Antisocial behaviour 08-Sep-2017

  • London Borough of Havering (17 007 441)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Antisocial behaviour 07-Sep-2017

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Ms B's complaints the Council has failed to deal with anti-social behaviour by a neighbour and has harassed Ms B. Further consideration of the complaint is unlikely to find fault by the Council or achieve any more for Ms B.

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Antisocial behaviour 17-Aug-2017

    Summary: We cannot investigate this complaint about the Council's failure to take action over the anti social behaviour of one of its tenants. A council's action as manager of social housing is not in the jurisdiction of the Local Government Ombudsman.

  • Poole Borough Council (16 017 118)

    Statement Not upheld Antisocial behaviour 09-Aug-2017

    Summary: The Council has reached a decision that it is no longer able to respond to complaints about family living noises or lifestyle choices from a neighbour without fault. It has communicated this to Mr and Mrs B and explained clearly that it will respond to complaints they make about threats or targeted abuse.

  • London Borough of Harrow (16 017 476)

    Statement Upheld Antisocial behaviour 04-Aug-2017

    Summary: The Council took too long to introduce measures it had previously agreed to implement in June 2016 to combat fly-tipping and environmental problems in Mr B's area. This has caused him some injustice. But after implementing them in March 2017 the Council has been more pro-active and taken appropriate action.

  • Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council (16 014 002)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Antisocial behaviour 04-Aug-2017

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate this complaint about the Council's responses to a neighbour dispute. This is because it is unlikely we would find fault and also it is unlikely we could add to the Council's investigation.

  • Waveney District Council (17 004 722)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Antisocial behaviour 02-Aug-2017

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Mr B's complaint about the way the Council (and other agencies) responded to his application for the Community Trigger. We cannot investigate the actions or decisions of the multi-agency Community Safety Partnerships and further consideration of the Council's response to Mr B's noise complaints is unlikely to find fault.

  • Ipswich Borough Council (17 005 636)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Antisocial behaviour 31-Jul-2017

    Summary: The Ombudsman cannot investigate Mr X's complaint that the Council refused to deal with the complaints his brother made against his neighbours. That is because the law prevents the Ombudsman from investigating complaints about the management of its social housing. He will not investigate the way the Council dealt with the complaint as this is unlikely to lead to a different outcome.

  • Mid Sussex District Council (17 005 099)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Antisocial behaviour 24-Jul-2017

    Summary: the Ombudsman will not investigate Ms X's complaints about what is happening in the Council's area. The matters complained of are outside the Ombudsman's jurisdiction or another body is better placed to deal with them.

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Antisocial behaviour 24-Jul-2017

    Summary: Ms X complained about the Council withdrawing from court proceedings following the first hearings on its prosecution of her neighbour. The Ombudsman cannot investigate this complaint. It concerns court proceedings more than twelve months ago and is outside his jurisdiction.
