Both Teignbridge and Mid Devon councils were awarded no star by the Audit Commission for their housing service.
The People’s Republic of South Devon has a run down of the failures of the Teignbridge service, as well as a comment from the Executive spokesperson for Housing and HR Services
Speaking to the Mid-Devon Star, Kevin Finan, Mid-Devon Council’s director of community services, said: “The inspectors have recognised that we have a robust and comprehensive programme of service improvements with increased focus and determination.
“We recognise that there are aspects of the housing service that do not yet fully meet our tenants’ expectations but we are currently undertaking a £1million plus programme which will radically improve a great number of our services.
“This programme will lead to better services for tenants and therefore better value for money.
“We are giving the highest priority to turning the housing service round and giving full consideration to all points raised with us by the inspectors.”
