  • Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council (20 013 567)

    Statement Upheld Covid-19 14-Jan-2022

    Summary: Mr X complained about the Council’s decision to impound his car after he thought he left it parked on private land with the owner’s permission. He said the Council should have informed the owner of the land and should have given more notice before it removed his car, due to the COVID-19 national lockdown. The Ombudsman did not find fault in the Council’s decision to remove Mr X’s car. However, we did find fault about the way the Council continued to hold Mr X’s car and charge storage fees.

  • Transport for London (20 009 661)

    Statement Upheld Covid-19 04-Jan-2022

    Summary: Miss X complained she was given incorrect advice by Transport for London (TfL) about its refund policy when she first asked for a refund on her apprenticeship travel card in April 2020. She is unhappy TfL did not issue a full refund when she asked again in December 2020. The Ombudsman considers there is not enough evidence to make a finding about the advice TfL gave Miss X in April 2020. There was no fault in TfL’s decision not to issue Miss X a full refund. However, there was fault causing injustice when TfL gave Miss X incorrect advice after she complained.

    Statement Upheld Covid-19 10-Dec-2021

    Summary: Mr E complained on behalf of a residents’ group about the introduction of a traffic barrier along the road where they live. We found some fault in the Council’s consideration of objections to the barrier provided by one of the emergency services. However, we did not consider this caused injustice and we did not uphold other complaints about consultation and potential impacts of the scheme. Consequently, we completed our investigation.
