Local Government Ombudsman Submissions - Roads and Buildings
Making appeals to the Local Government Ombudsman usually involves a local resident, the residents of a street or a whole community taking to task the unacceptable services or decisions that a local authority has provided or undertaken. The service has no cost from the Ombudsman's side but there are professional costs for mounting an appeal which usually involves a petition, photographs, supporting information and possibly a condensed submission report.
Councils usually adopt the decision of the Ombudsman's 'Inspector' or his or her agent.
Costs of Appeals
Costs vary, but an indicative cost are in the region of £250 for a simple appeal and between £1,500 and £3,000 for an appeal on behalf of the residents of a street.
Injury Claims against a Local Government Authority - Councils
At times injuries happen that are a direct result of local authority negligence. When this is the case a claim against the local council can be relevant. Injuries such as tripping over a raised or depressed kerb or paving flag are far more common than people realise. But, people who are injured have to know the right procedure to go about a claim or it will eventually fail. This 'Practice' undertakes such advisory work and what is a strong case and what is regarded as a weak case for a successful outcome. But where it has to be said that where it is determined that the injured person has a strong claim, we shall advise, guide and submit a claim on your behalf and support you throughout the whole process
