    Statement Not upheld Antisocial behaviour 11-May-2021

  • West Lancashire Borough Council (20 002 186)

    Statement Upheld Antisocial behaviour 10-May-2021

    Summary: Mr C complained the Council did not properly respond or take appropriate action in response to his reports of anti-social behaviour from his neighbours which he says was racially motivated. Mr C says he and his family suffered unnecessary upset, distress and anxiety. We have found fault by the Council in the time taken to provide a decision to Mr C but consider the apology it has already provided is enough to provide a suitable remedy.

    Summary: Mrs X complained the Council has failed to deal with the nuisance caused by her neighbour's private animal rescue sanctuary which she says causes odour problems and problems with flies and rats.

  • Hartlepool Borough Council (19 013 913)

    Statement Upheld Antisocial behaviour 09-Apr-2021

    Summary: Mr C says the Council failed to do enough to control antisocial behaviour by youths on his road. He says this caused him injustice because he was distressed by the disturbance. He also says officers were rude to him on the phone when he complained. The Council was not at fault for its actions taken to limit antisocial behaviour. It took action but did not have to take the actions Mr C wanted. The Council accepts that some officers provided a poor service to Mr C. This was fault. However, the Council apologised so no further remedy is required.

  • London Borough of Waltham Forest (20 003 839)

    Statement Upheld Antisocial behaviour 08-Apr-2021

    Summary: Mr X complained the Council failed to take appropriate action when he complained of noise nuisance from a neighbouring property. The Council was at fault when it fettered its discretion to consider the circumstances of Mr X's noise nuisance complaints. The Council should make changes to its policy to avoid similar fault occurring in future.

  • Bristol City Council (20 006 835)

    Statement Upheld Antisocial behaviour 06-Apr-2021

    Summary: The Council sent correspondence to a third party about anti-social behaviour that contained information about Ms B's actions which the Council worded as fact rather than officer opinion. This was fault; the Council should have been clear it was officer opinion based on evidence but not a fact. This has upset Ms B. The Council will apologise, rectify its records and the correspondence to the third party, and remind relevant officers to be careful with the language used in records and correspondence.

  • Mid Sussex District Council (20 005 153)

    Statement Upheld Antisocial behaviour 01-Apr-2021

    Summary: Mr X complained the Council issued him with a Community Protection Warning for filming his neighbours. Mr X complained this Community Protection Warning shows on a Disclosure and Barring Service check. Mr X says the Council issuing a Community Protection Warning on him was distressing and frustrating since he was the victim of harassment from his neighbours. The Ombudsman does not find fault with the Council for issuing Mr X with a Community Protection Warning.

  • Hartlepool Borough Council (18 015 426)

    Statement Upheld Antisocial behaviour 30-Mar-2021

    Summary: We upheld part of Mr X's complaint about how the Council responded to his concerns about anti-social behaviour. There was no fault in the Council's decision not to take further action about the anti-social behaviour. However, there were faults in its communication with Mr X and it failed to tell him about the Community Trigger. The Council agreed to share information about the Community Trigger with Mr X. It will also update us on its progress towards promoting use of the Community Trigger.
