    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Commercial and contracts 30-Mar-2021

    Summary: We will not investigate Mr C's complaint that the Council breached the terms of a garage licence agreement by not repairing a leak in the garage roof. This is because the courts are in the best position to decide the issues Mr C complains about. Mr C may put in a money claim to court and we find it is reasonable for him to do this.

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Commercial and contracts 09-Mar-2021

    Summary: We will not investigate this complaint from a businessman about the Council's failure to pay him a grant under its Business Growth Scheme.

In addition, the man has complained late about this matter.

  • City of York Council (20 006 365)

    Statement Upheld Commercial and contracts 18-Feb-2021

    Summary: Mrs X complains the Council wrongly disposed of belongings from a garage it leased to her husband for a second time. The Council has accepted there was fault. It has apologised, made service improvements and offered payments for Mrs X's time, trouble and distress. I am satisfied these are a suitable remedy for the injustice caused. The courts are better placed to deal with the dispute about the value of the lost property.
