  • Kirklees Metropolitan Borough Council (18 001 983)

    Statement Not upheld Leisure and culture 27-Mar-2019

    Summary: The Ombudsman found no fault on Mrs S's complaint about the Council failing to consult and notify her about operators wanting to use a park for events like funfairs. It is under no legal obligation to do so. Nor was there fault on her complaint about it failing to act on her reports of noise nuisance from such events. The records show a Council officer visited her and spoke to the operator who reduced noise levels.

  • Stroud District Council (18 017 497)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Leisure and culture 27-Mar-2019

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Mr X's complaint about an annual swimming pass. This is because there is not enough evidence of fault. It is also unlikely we could add anything to the Council's response or that an investigation would lead to a different outcome.

  • Northumberland County Council (18 008 632)

    Statement Upheld Leisure and culture 22-Mar-2019

    Summary: Mrs X complained a Leisure Provider, acting on behalf of the Council, failed to properly investigate her complaint about an alleged assault by a staff member in its leisure centre. There was fault and the Council will pay £150 to Mrs X for the distress caused and time and trouble spent on pursuing the complaint. The Council will also make service improvements to the Leisure Provider's complaints procedure.

  • Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council (18 016 963)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Leisure and culture 20-Mar-2019

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Ms X's complaint about an incident at a tennis centre. This is because there is not enough evidence that Ms X has been caused significant personal injustice. But even if that were not the case, the Ombudsman cannot establish liability in personal injury claims. These are matters for the courts. Investigation of Ms X's complaint about cancelled bookings is also not appropriate. This is because the personal injustice is not significant enough, and it is unlikely we could add anything to the Council's response.

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Leisure and culture 15-Mar-2019

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate this complaint about inadequate facilities provided by the Council at a concert. This is because the personal injustice arising from the alleged fault is not so significant as to justify our continued involvement.
