    Statement Upheld Other 27-Apr-2021

    Summary: Mr and Mrs X complained the Council failed to take enforcement action in respect of a defective drainage system at a neighbouring property.

    Statement Upheld Other 15-Feb-2021

    Summary: Mr X complained about how the Council responded to his reports of rats and drainage problems that affected his property. We have agreed with the Council's previous assessment that there was some fault because it failed to carry out an inspection on one occasion and did not respond to some of Mr X's complaints properly. To remedy the distress caused by these faults, the Council has already apologised and offered a payment to Mr X. We consider this to be a suitable outcome to remedy the injustice caused to Mr X.
