Mojacar is among 19 councils being taken to court by the public ombudsman for “impeding its work”, according to its 2017 annual report published this week.
The case relates to failure to provide information repeatedly requested by the ombudsman in relation to a complaint made by a resident about postal delays in 2015.
The person reportedly complained that errors in street numbering were preventing correct delivery of post.
Some reports have also speculated that the council has failed to provide information to the ombudsman in other cases such as a complaint made by Somos Mojacar about the town’s ‘garage tax’ (‘keep clear’ regulations). However, these are not cited in the official report.
