Council Paid Out £3000 in Compensation

Compensation has been paid to some residents by the Labour run Leicester City Council for not dealing with their complaints.

The Local Government Ombudsman investigated 73 complaints in the last financial year, 18 resulted in the ombudsman deciding that a cash settlement had to be agreed. Complaints received by the Ombudsman ranged from delayed housing repairs to more serious complaints of not dealing with anti social behaviour issues.
