    Statement Not upheld Land 17-Jul-2017

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Land 21-Jun-2017

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Mr B's complaint that the Council is refusing to maintain an area of land near his home.

    Statement Not upheld Land 14-Jun-2017

    Summary: X have previously complained to the Ombudsman about events at the centre of this complaint. We had no power to investigate the key issues in that earlier complaint.

  • Welland & Deepings I D B (17 000 919)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Land 12-Jun-2017

    Summary: Mr X complains the Drainage Board damaged plants growing on his property when it cleared and widened a drainage ditch on land behind his garden. This is outside the Ombudsman's jurisdiction because Mr X can take legal action against the Board if he considers it had removed or damaged his property without permission.

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Land 01-Jun-2017
