  • London Borough of Hackney (19 010 204)

    Statement Upheld Antisocial behaviour 21-Sep-2020

    Summary: Ms X complained the Council failed to properly investigate her complaint about noise from neighbours. She also said the Council failed to make reasonable adjustments which reduced her ability to engage in its investigation. The Ombudsman finds the Council at fault because there were some delays during the investigation. However, the delays did not have a significant impact on the outcome. Apart from the delays, the Council investigated Ms X's complaint as we would expect and appropriately considered her request for reasonable adjustments. The Council has provided an appropriate apology to
    Ms X for the delays.
