  • Nottinghamshire County Council (18 015 629)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Rights of way 21-Feb-2019

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Mr X's complaint about the reintroduction of a public footpath. This is because the complaint is late. Also, we have no jurisdiction to consider decisions taken by the Planning Inspector, and there is not enough evidence of fault by the Council. It is also reasonable for Mr X to use the alternative remedy that is available to him.

  • East Sussex County Council (18 014 668)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Rights of way 08-Feb-2019

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Mr X's complaint about the Council's estimated timescale for dealing with his Definitive Map Modification Order applications. It is unlikely we would find fault causing Mr X significant injustice and if Mr X disputes the estimate provided by the Council he should put his concerns to the Planning Inspector dealing with the case.

  • Norfolk County Council (18 012 708)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Rights of way 17-Jan-2019

    Summary: Mr B complains about the actions and claims the Council has made to land he owns and about the incorrect and misleading information it has made public in relation to the land. The Ombudsman will not investigate the complaint because part of it falls outside our jurisdiction and because there are insufficient grounds to warrant an investigation of its actions in asphalting the footpath.

  • Wiltshire Council (18 008 737)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Rights of way 27-Nov-2018

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Mrs X's complaint about the Council's handling of a right of way matter and its investigation into the alleged conduct of a parish councillor. The complaint is outside his jurisdiction because Mrs X had an alternative remedy available.

  • Dorset County Council (18 010 501)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Rights of way 22-Nov-2018

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate this complaint. This is because the complaint is late without good reason and Ms Y can apply for clarification and amendment of the right of way which, if rejected, can be better considered by the Secretary of State.

  • Stratford-on-Avon District Council (18 009 765)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Rights of way 13-Nov-2018

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate this complaint about the Council's failure to prevent and investigate the laying of tarmac on part of the village green. This is because the courts are better placed to decide if there has been an offence and there is not enough evidence of fault by the Council to warrant the Ombudsman investigating.

  • Lincolnshire County Council (18 005 188)

    Statement Upheld Rights of way 09-Nov-2018

    Summary: Mr Q complains about the Council not providing an alternative safe path for pedestrians after it closed a footway. Mr Q says this puts pedestrians in danger. There was fault with the Council's actions. However, there was no significant injustice because the outcome would have been the same had the faults not occurred.

  • Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council (18 006 637)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Rights of way 31-Oct-2018

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Miss X's complaint that the Council wrongly installed bollards on a section of un-adopted road. The complaint is late and it is unlikely we could achieve anything for Miss X. If she wishes to assert a private right of access over the road she would need to go to court.

  • Redcar & Cleveland Council (17 018 353)

    Statement Upheld Rights of way 23-Oct-2018

    Summary: Mrs X complains the Council inappropriately erected a fence between their rear alleyway and a road in an adjoining housing estate. There was fault by the Council. It failed to apply for planning permission for the fence or properly consider the impact the fence would have on rights of access. The Council agreed to remove the fence to restore the position before the fault occurred.

  • Nottinghamshire County Council (18 008 423)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Rights of way 12-Oct-2018

    Summary: The Ombudsman does not have grounds to investigate this complaint about the Council's refusal to accept an application to extinguish a public right of way. This is because there is no sign of fault in the way the Council dealt with the matter.
