I would word it exactly the way stu007 did in his post, otherwise you're changing the meaning slightly. You want to see the policy for a) noise and b) antisocial behavour. [stu says the procedures will be within the policies.]

 

I would start it with Dear Sir rather than Hi.

 

HB

Thanx

 

Dear Sir,

 

Please provide me with your policy for:

 

a) Noise

b) Social Behaviour

 

 

Regards,

 

Mr XXX

agree, just copy what he has written then it will be clear to the council what you want and they wont be able to wriggle out of supplying the info because your wording doesnt use the exact terminology.

Ok, i see. Check my previous post pls. Does the wording make more sense now?

Thank you EB, I don't know why I didn't spot that. I thought something was missing and couldn't see for looking.

That was a misprint, but i can't find the edit option for that post. Looks like we can't edit our old posts here.

Thank you very much. They didn't reply to my email sent on 24.01.2018. Thus I will post them your version of the letter by special delivery.

As I have the Ref.number, I think they have the full text of my initial complaint, that's why the outline is really brief.

That's how it looks: As you know I reported you regular and continuous shouting of my neighbours every night after 11 o'clock.

Just for your information: I sent them that letter recorded delivery on the 5th of February, but I still have no response from them... Looks like they are not going to answer at all..

What should I do if they chose to just ignore me..?

Hi

 

You mention you sent this Recorded Delivery now did you do it Signed For & have you checked Royal Mail Website with your unique code on your receipt to ensure it was delivered & the date & if applicable signed for and a signature? (make sure and take screenshots of everything)

 

Check the Councils Website for there Complaints Procedure (think of the date they got your letter) what does that procedure say they must acknowledge your complaint within a certain amount of days you use this against them).

 

So if you have all the above you follow up your complaint referring to all the above (enclosing photocopies of your evidence) and there failure to comply with there own complaints procedure (referring to the X days to acknowledge) and that you are still awaiting a response to my letter dated (the date on your letter that you posted 5th Feb 2019).

you move on to the next level of the complaints procedure and write to the chief exec of the council and state that yu put in a request adn complaint to ( name of dept) by recoded delivery on the 5th Feb and you havent had an acknowledgemt of that not a response in the prescribed period. You ar therefore raiing this as a level 2 complaint and expect the council to respond properly in the time allowed or you will be making a compalint of maladministration to the Local overnment Ombudsman.

let your ward councillors know as well so they can make noises to the elected head of the council

Their time is up so get yur letter snet  into the CE of the council as a second stage complaint. This is about not only the subject but their failure to respond within the timescale prescribed. You expect action on both parts of this within the next 20 days ( check it isnt working days)

Yes, I think there's no point waiting any more. I've just composed the message. But I'm not sure about the address of the Chief Executive of my Council(newham). Should I write to the same address as before, but  instead of  Anti-Social Team just use the name of the Chief Executive?

I wouldn't like it to get into the wrong hands.. It would be ridiculous, if the letter will be opened by the fellas against whom I complain.

 

Here's the text I've just prepared: 

 

Dear Chief Executive of Newham Council, Ms/Mr YYYY

This is my 2nd stage of your complaints process. On the 5th of February I filed a formal complaint with your Anti-Social Behaviour and Nuisance Team. Please find a copy of the letter enclosed. More than 20 days passed, but I still haven't got any response from them. They received it the next day. Please find the copy of the receipt enclosed. They just ignored it. Please take all appropriate steps to sort out the situation.

Sincerely yours

 

Mr XXX

Hi

Hi

Just my take:

Chief Executive 
Newham Council
Address


Dear XXXXXXXXXX

Formal Complaint

Further to my Formal Complaint letter about Anti Social Behaviour dated xx/xx/2019 which you received on xx/xx/2019 (proof of receipt enclosed).

As this has now passed your Stage 1 Time Limit (20 days)(https://www.newham.gov.uk/Pages/Services/Complaints-process.aspx) 
without even an acknowledgement of my Complaint letter dated xx/xx/2019.

I now require my Formal Complaint to be moved to Stage 2 of the Complaints Process due to the above.
(if there is a link to this on the councils website post that link here otherwise delete)

I also now require copies of the following:

1. Newham Council Noise Policy (not the leaflet)
2. Newham Council Anti-Social Behaviour Policy (not the leaflet)
3. Newham Council Complaints Policy (not the leaflet)
5. Newham Council Customer Care Policy (not the leaflet)
6. Newham Council Equality & Diversity Policy (not the leaflet)

(check there website some of these may be there, remember to delete this)

It is a very common problem particularly with Signed For. Often the postman may sign for it and shove it through the door, then forget to update Track & Trace when he has finished.

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
