    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Parking and other penalties 22-Mar-2018

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Mr X's complaint about the Council's handling of a penalty charge notice. Mr X had a right of appeal against the notice and if he disputed it, it would have been reasonable for him to await the Council's response and appeal. The Council has offered to refund Mr X £65 in recognition of its delay in responding to his correspondence and it is unlikely we would recommend any further remedy.
