Yorkshire Council inaccurate

The local government ombudsman has found that East Riding of Yorkshire Council provided inaccurate advice on lifting an agricultural occupancy condition. A woman complained that the council had wrongly advised the executors of her father's will over how to lift the condition, which reduced the value of his house.

The council is recommended to pay the complainant the difference in value of the house and £250.
