The plan sets out new approaches for handling casework based on a new, more efficient operating model. It includes plans to support earlier resolution of complaints within landlords’ complaint procedures as well as faster, high-quality decisions on complaints in its formal remit.

The G15 welcomes the opportunity to feedback on the Ombudsman’s 2020-21 Business Plan and value the service the Ombudsman provides to us and to residents. Now more than ever before the G15 and the wider sector are working to improve trust and accountability to residents, and redress is an essential part of that.
