  • Norwich City Council (20 011 674)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Leisure and culture 26-Mar-2021

    Summary: Mr X complained about the Council's failure to ensure that neighbouring allotment plots were kept free of weeds which seeded onto his own plot. We will not investigate this complaint. This is because there is insufficient evidence of injustice which would warrant an investigation.

  • Durham County Council (20 010 757)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Leisure and culture 04-Mar-2021

    Summary: On the evidence currently available, we will not investigate Miss X's complaint about the Council pursuing her for outstanding fees as she had cancelled her leisure centre membership early due to the closure of the swimming pool. This is because the complaint is late and there are no good reasons why the late complaint rule should not apply. There is also insufficient evidence of fault by the Council.

    Summary: We will not investigate this complaint about the Council requiring a community group to leave Council-owned premises. We are unlikely to find evidence of fault by the Council in how decided to ask the group to leave. If the group believes it has a legal right to remain, the courts are best placed to determine the issue.
