Landlords beware. Torbay council have a very aggressive attitude without any concerns for private landlords. Be aware that when it comes to renting your house to help releve the shortfall in council owned properties, the council do not look upon you with anything but contempt

Housing department treat temporary accommodation clients as children and not like adults and serve you with written warnings to sleep rough when you do not obey their meetings and their rules you would give a child.

They don’t know what they are doing! Very poorly managed. Why can’t they find competent management that can sort things out in all areas. It’s so poor that it makes me wonder if they have designed it this way!? …

This council are the biggest waste of time, no one answers phones, emails replied with unrelated content. New bins never arrive. Waste collections missed, roadside, greens and walkways left then cut znd strewn across pathways. The nicest member of staff I’ve ever come across is the guy emptying the dog waste bins

Just want to say thank you to the lovely women who work at Torbay registry office. My son needed a replacement birth certificate to get emergency documents for his very sick child. I phoned the office at Cockington at 1:30 and was able to pick up his BC at 4 pm in Paignton . Thank you so much for great service. 🙏🏼😊 …

I always wanted to visit the English Riviera but after having to pay for every hour of the day and night that I was parked there, I won’t be coming back. Pay and display 24hours a day! 7days a week! everywhere. I cut my holiday short and went home.

Absolutely disgraceful performance from Torbay council. Unable to contact the council by phone as they fail to answer it. No doubt using covid as an excuse, however this has been going on for years. The executive and councillors should be ashamed as this is on them.

No help for working families. It’s a sad state of affairs when you’re better off, financially, not working. Maybe I should quit my job and have everything handed to me on a plate like many people do in Torbay. …

MOST of the individuals working within Torbay council, including most. Councillors, would not be employable within the commercial world. They would not cope, which is why they opt for lower wages and deliver 3rd grade effort. They hide …

it’s a Sunday late afternoon and came home to find a dead gull on the front of my property. I filled in the online form which goes to TOR2 for them to deal with. The gull was gone within the hour. Amazing service. Many thanks.

Absolutely no way of contacting them to correct their mistakes. Stop using Covid as an excuse for your poor service. Everyone is struggling apart from you, as you are not willing to make any concessions for others hardship during this time, obviously there is no compassion and you should be ashamed.

recorded message on the ‘phone saying ’email your problem to us’, nowhere immediately obvious on the website when you try to do this. Poorly designed, too many rabbit holes.
