About the council
The Local Government Ombudsman and Housing Ombudsman investigate complaints about councils and certain other bodies.However all complaints should initially be referred to the Council, to be dealt with under the Council’s complaints procedure. If you still believe your complaint remains unresolved following the review by the Chief Executive you can refer the matter to the relevant Ombudsman. The Local Government Ombudsman deals with complaints about Council services including housing allocations and homelessness.
The Housing Ombudsman deals with complaints about housing management, repairs, leaseholders, transfers and mutual exchanges. Please note that in order to encourage local resolution of complaints, the Housing Ombudsman will not investigate a complaint unless it has been referred by a designated person (an MP, a local councillor or a tenant panel recognised by the council) or eight weeks have elapsed since the final stage of the council’s internal complaints procedure.
