Statement Closed after initial enquiries Other 01-May-2020
Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Mr X's complaint about the Council's 2017 decision to grant a Certificate of Lawful Development to a nearby industrial site. The complaint is late. There is not enough evidence of Council fault to justify an Ombudsman investigation of the matter now. Mr X can submit to the Council any evidence he has about the site's certification which he considers should result in different decision, and it would be reasonable to ask the courts to decide any question of the Council's interpretation of planning law relevant to the site.
