Summary: The Council failed to comply with an agreed Ombudsman action to apologise and pay Mr X £200 following a final decision we made in February 2020 (reference: 17 018 925).

Finding

The Ombudsman upheld the complaint and found fault causing injustice.

Recommendations

The Council has agreed to:

  • pay Mr X the £200 it agreed following our final decision in February 2020; and
