LGO issues further report on Durham planning complaint

The Local Government Ombudsman has issued a further report into a planning complaint against Durham County Council.

The LGO issued its initial report on the complaint in February 2012, in which residents complained about the way Teesdale District Council considered planning applications to build cowsheds on farmland. The report was issued against Durham County Council as the successor authority and contained a number of recommendations for actions that the council needed to take

The further report puts on record the Ombudsman’s position since the original report was released.  It confirms that there are still outstanding actions that the council needs to take in response to issues raised in the original complaint. The council has been given three months to confirm what action it intends to take to comply with the outstanding recommendation.
