How to avoid blame and criticism – oh, and EDDC’s view is that they don’t have to take any notice of the Local Government Ombudsman if they don’t like what she says

Cabinet Minutes of 5 March 2014

 The Chief Executive presented this report which outlined the actions taken and learning points arising from a recent finding of fault by the Local Government Ombudsman.   Although the Ombudsman’s recommendations were not legally binding, the Council always took them into account as a way of improving its services and procedures.  The Ombudsman’s final decision notice was appended to the report.

Was the report anywhere to be found with the papers – no.  Does anyone have any idea what EDDC did wrong and what they had to do to put it right – no.

Does anyone think that we are having wool pulled over our eyes yet again – yes.
