  • East Riding of Yorkshire Council (20 011 912)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Other 31-Mar-2021

    Summary: We will not investigate this complaint about how the Council dealt with a breach of planning control or a retrospective planning application. This is because we are unlikely to find fault and the complainant has not been caused significant injustice.

  • Bassetlaw District Council (20 011 581)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Other 31-Mar-2021

    Summary: We will not investigate this complaint about damage caused to the complainant's property by works to a nearby development. This is because it is unlikely an investigation would achieve the outcome the complainant wants. The complainant can also seek a remedy in court for the claimed injustice.

  • Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council (20 005 963)

    Statement Not upheld Other 30-Mar-2021

    Summary: There was no fault by the Council in a complaint that it did not take enforcement action against a breach of planning control at a neighbouring property.

  • Cornwall Council (20 004 621)

    Statement Not upheld Other 30-Mar-2021

    Summary: Mr X complains about the Council's decision not to approve a request for an Article 4 direction to remove permitted development rights. Mr X complains this is significantly impacting residents and the local area. The Ombudsman finds no fault by the Council in its decision not to implement an Article 4 direction. This is because the decision was made having considered the information available and current legislation for aircraft noise.

  • Fylde Borough Council (20 011 731)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Other 30-Mar-2021

    Summary: We will not investigate Mr X's complaint about the Council's planning committee's decision to grant planning permission for a development next to his home. There is not enough evidence of fault in the way officers recommended approval, or in the committee's grant of the permission, to warrant our investigation. Even if it were fault by the Council in not notifying Mr X of the planning committee meeting, there is insufficient evidence that Mr X giving his objections at the meeting would have resulted in a different planning outcome. The size or standard of the new development's accommodation is not a personal injustice to Mr X. We cannot achieve the key outcome Mr X seeks from his complaint.

  • South Oxfordshire District Council (20 012 007)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Other 29-Mar-2021

    Summary: We will not investigate this complaint about the Council's involvement to label the complainant's land as open green space in a Neighbourhood Plan. We are unlikely to find fault in the Council's actions. And we cannot achieve the outcome the complainant is seeking.

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Other 26-Mar-2021

    Summary: Ms X complains about the Council's handling of a planning development next door to her father's property. We will not investigate the complaint because it is unlikely we can add to the investigation already carried out by the Council and an investigation is unlikely to lead to a different outcome.

  • West Lindsey District Council (20 011 724)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Other 24-Mar-2021

    Summary: We will not investigate Mr X's complaint about the Council's decision to approve a planning application for a development close to his home. This is because there is not enough evidence of fault by the Council or that Mr X has been caused a significant personal injustice.

  • Cheshire West & Chester Council (20 010 851)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Other 24-Mar-2021

    Summary: We will not investigate Mr C's complaint about a planning decision the Council took in 2017. This is because his complaint is late and there are not good enough reasons for us to exercise discretion to investigate it now.

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Other 22-Mar-2021

    Summary: Mr X complains about the Council's handling of matters related to two buildings he has built at his property. We will not investigate the complaint because an investigation will not achieve the outcomes he seeks.
