Deloitte investigation reports on property services allegations

Publication of Deloitte investigation reports

The Council has published two reports it commissioned from Deloitte into historic allegations made against previous property services in the Council.

While many of the concerns have been summarised for Council meetings and reported in the media before, the reports are available here for the public.

The two reports are

  1. Power’, dated March 2012, and covering allegations about the Council’s Property Conservation servicewhich administered the statutory notice repair scheme, and the Council’s Property Care service which managed repairs to the Council’s own properties.
  2. ‘Solar’, dated June 2012, which was a follow-up to Power to help establish if any broader management issues existed in relation to Property Conservation.

Some information has been blacked out or redacted for two reasons

  • to protect the identity of individuals,including those who supported the investigation and were not part of the disciplinary process
  • because of legal proceedings relating to the Council’s Property Care section.

We have published a statement explaining our view on the reports and what action we have taken.
