Tarka opens a home of its own
Housing provider Tarka Housing celebrates a new home and a fourth anniversary
TARKA Housing, which took over responsibility for the former council housing stock and now provides 1,700 affordable homes in the Torridge district, officially opened the doors of its own new home in Bideford on Friday.
The opening of the headquarters on the Clovelly Road Industry Estate by Cllr Roger Johnson, deputy leader of Torridge District Council, came on the same day as Tarka’s fourth anniversary.
Staff spent four days transferring files and services across the town from its former headquarters at East-the-Water, while also maintaining services to householders.
The move has brought better facilities for the expanded Tarka Works service and smart new meeting rooms for tenants and board members to use.
