  • Bath and North East Somerset Council (16 015 004)

    Statement Not upheld Enforcement 15-Jan-2018

    Summary: The Council decided not to take enforcement action against the complainant who owns land which he disputes is still affected by a Section 106 Agreement. The complainants have alternative legal remedies available to them we believe it reasonable for them to exercise: namely applying to the courts to interpret the law and legal documents. In addition some of the events took place too long ago for us to exercise our powers to investigate. Therefore, we are discontinuing the investigation.
