Case Reference Number



Early resolution

Miss X complained that her neighbour’s regular feeding of wild birds is causing a noise nuisance, a health hazard and impacting on Miss X’s ability to use her garden.

The Ombudsman decided that the Council should provide Miss X with a written response (within 3 weeks) to explain what options are available to her to try to ameliorate the problem.

The Ombudsman considered this to be an appropriate resolution to the complaint .
