  • Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council (19 019 424)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Other 26-Mar-2020

    Summary: The Ombudsman cannot investigate this complaint that a private company has been allowed to manage maintenance of a housing development. This is because the planning permission that allowed the company to be set up was granted by the Planning Inspectorate, which is not a body within the Ombudsman's jurisdiction. The Ombudsman will not investigate the Council's involvement in an agreement with the developer because investigation is unlikely to find fault or produce a different outcome.
