Dear Mr Smithson,

 

I’m writing in regards to your unresolved query. My apologies that you
have yet to receive a response. The Covid-19 lockdown has meant that
Council staff are all working from home and do not have their usual access
to resources.

 

However, I have ensured that the relevant teams have been reminded that a
response to your request is still outstanding, and I hope to have an
answer to you once we are able to return to the office.

 

If you wish to complain about this delay you can find information on the
Office of the Ombudsman website:  [2]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or
freephone 0800 802 602.

 

 

Kind regards,
