    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Antisocial behaviour 22-Mar-2019

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Antisocial behaviour 20-Mar-2019

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Mr B's complaint about the Council's seizure of his possessions.

  • Luton Borough Council (17 006 653)

    Statement Not upheld Antisocial behaviour 18-Mar-2019

    Summary: The Council's responses to Miss X's reports of a stalker near her home did not involve fault. The Council did not promise to use CCTV to gather evidence about the stalker. Officers' attempts to prevent residents blocking pavements with wheeled bins has not removed the problem. But the Council took timely and proportionate actions which did not involve fault. It is not fault those actions did not solve the problem.

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Antisocial behaviour 13-Mar-2019

  • Breckland District Council (18 008 467)

    Statement Upheld Antisocial behaviour 12-Mar-2019

    Summary: The Council overstepped its remit when investigating anti-social behaviour complaints. This left the complainants feeling the Council is biased towards the other party. The Council failed to deal with their complaint promptly because of technical issues which led to time and trouble chasing the Council. The Council should apologise and remind officers of their remit.

He also complains the Council withdrew accommodation and financial support from him and his wife based on a flawed care needs assessment. We do not uphold these complaints, finding no or insufficient evidence of fault by the Council causing an injustice to Mr B or his wife.
