Broken promises

Some eight weeks ago I was told by the Ombudsman that the Council had promised her they had decided on a course of action and would be communicating it to me imminently.

Still waiting, another broken promise, more delay

Deja vu

7 years ago the Council promised the then Ombudsman that they would redesign the roadway so that it would not impact on my property and then redesigned it so it did. Another broken promise!

6 years ago the Council promised the then Ombudsman that they were doing everything possible to resolve the situation and then did virtually nothing. Another broken promise!

Has the council been castigated by the Ombudsman for breaking any of their promises,? What do you think? It would appear that Councils will promise Local Government Ombudsmen anything to get them of their back and then ignore their promises knowing that Local Government Ombudsmen can't do anything about it because they are impotent.

When did you last hear about a Council being castigated by a Local Government Ombudsman for breaking a promise, lying or using delaying tactics?
