Ombudsman refuses to investigate Councillor's complaint


Willaston and Rope Ward Councillor Brian Silvester called in the Local Government Ombudsman over the curtailment of the green waste bin collection for 4 months in Cheshire East.

He said," I am surprised that the Ombudsman will not investigate my complaint because I am a Councillor. (See attached and below).It seems wrong that  a Councillor is unable to make a complaint as a resident, like anybody else. In these cases, Councillors are being treated as second class citizens. However, all is not lost. I have had many communications from across the whole of Cheshire East. There is lot of anger about the way this decision has been taken and the timing of it. Several residents have volunteered to make their own complaint to the Ombudsman and I am sure that this will happen quickly."
