Decisions for North Devon District Council between 01 April 2019 and 31 March 2020


There are 2 results (please note that to maintain confidentiality, we do not publish all our decisions)

  • North Devon District Council (18 015 673)

    Statement Upheld Enforcement 12-Nov-2019

    Summary: The Ombudsman upholds Mr X's complaint. The Council delayed in opening an enforcement investigation. It also communicated poorly and failed to act on Mr X's environmental health concerns. This frustrated Mr X and left him unsure how the Council had considered his concerns. The Council will apologise to Mr X, provide a service from its environmental health team and issue reminders to staff about information sharing, the investigation process, and timely communication.

  • North Devon District Council (18 014 430)

    Statement Upheld Planning applications 29-Apr-2019

    Summary: Mr B complains about the Council's handling of his neighbour's planning application for an extension. Mr B says the Council did not adequately consider the impact on his garden of overlooking from the new first floor window. There was fault by the Council in the description of the impact of the development on Mr B's property. But that does not call into question the decision made.
