Local Government


Welcome to Local Government Ombudsman Watch     

The objective of Local Government Ombudsman Watch  is to motivate others into campaigning for the abolition of the LGO and its replacement with a truly independent local government complaints tribunal, where no member previously worked for a council. One that doesn't bury maladministration for their friends and ex colleagues. For the first time, councils will have something to fear when citizens threaten to complain about maladministration.
