Action Taken Under Delegated Authority (Significant Operational Decision): Minor Change to Response Times for Corporate Complaints

Following updated complaints handling guidance from the Ombudsman, The Council is required to be compliant with regards to response times for Stage 1 and 2 complaints. The timescales the Ombudsman proposes are in conflict with the Council’s policy and it is therefore important to update the Council’s response times to ensure compliance.


In light of this, on 21 June 2022, the Head of Governance, People & Performance made the following minor changes to the Corporate Complaints Procedure, to ensure we are compliant with Ombudsman guidance on complaints response times. These changes are to reduce Stage 1 complaint responses to 10 working days from 15 working days and increase Stage 2 responses from 15 working days to 20 working days.
