  • Cheshire East Council (17 000 966)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Other 08-May-2017

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Mr A's complaint about the way the Council has considered his complaints. This is because there is not enough evidence of fault with the Councils actions to warrant an investigation. Where the substantive matters do not themselves warrant investigation, the Ombudsman will not normally consider how the Council has responded to a complaint about them. That is the case here.
