KINGSTON UPON HULL WARDS OFF INTERVENTION

Kingston upon Hull City Council has won a reprieve from government intervention in its struggling housing service.

Hull was given a month to turn the department around after a visit by ODPM director of local government practice John Haward (LGC, 23 April).

But the council is believed to have done enough in the interim to have warded off the threat of intervention.

'We are not out of the woods, but the threat appears to have eased,' said a Hull source.

Hull, which is under the guidance of ODPM envoy Tony Allen, was told in two damning Audit Commission reports that urgent action was needed to address the council's huge housing stock surplus (LGC, 14 November 2003).
