This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Sir or Madam,

During the last five years how many times has the Local Government Ombudsman (as a result of investigating a complaint against Wychavon District Council) brought to the attention of the council the fact that a member of Wychavon District Council staff had misled them, lied to them or done anything else to hinder their investigation. If they have what disciplinary action was taken against the individual(s) concerned by the council.

Yours faithfully,

Trevor R Nunn
