    Statement Not upheld Street furniture and lighting 25-Feb-2020

    Summary: Mr B considers that there was fault in the way the County Council approved the installation of a bus shelter across the road from his home.

The Ombudsman has found no fault in the way the County Council considered this matter, so we cannot question the merits of the decision to approve the bus shelter.
