A new survey has found that a large majority of council house tenants in Moray are happy with the service they are receiving.
The survey – carried out earlier this year – was the first of its kind for five years.
A report that went to the council’s communities committee this week pointed out that 88% of tenants were either satisfied or very satisfied with the council’s housing service – a 9% increase on 2007.
Committee chairman Councillor Eric McGillivray said: "The results are very encouraging and I am grateful that tenants took the time and trouble to participate in the survey.
"The purpose of carrying out such surveys is to identify the areas in which the council might improve its performance and the results have highlighted a number of areas where we might want to look at improvements and we will be working on these areas."
