Ombudsman complaints

The Ombudsman provides an independent review of a customer's complaint about something a council has done or failed to do.

At the Borough Council of Wellingborough, the Ombudsman is the final stage of our complaints procedure.

It is normally a requirement of the Ombudsman that the Council you are complaining about has had the chance to review your concerns; in some circumstances, he will consider a complaint at an earlier stage.

Copies of the Ombudsman's "How to Complain" leaflet are available from Swanspool House reception or you can complete a form online.
