TOPIC: UK PLANNING - LONDON BOROUGH OF HAMERSMITH AND FULHAM (LBHF) - LOCAL GOVERNMENT OMBUDSMAN (LGO)

MISTAKES, MISSTATEMENTS AND MISFEASANCE

This case involving the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham shows how a local council can flout the law in all impunity with the consent and complicity of the people supposed to hold them to account. It puts in question the integrity of the planning system and in particular the Local Government Ombudsman's ability to fulfil its mission.
