Aberdeen City Council has been warned to improve its housing and education services by the public spending watchdog.
A new report from the Accounts Commission praised how the council had improved over the past five years, addressing many of the issues affecting its performance.
However, it warned housing and education still needed to improve significantly.
Interim chair of the Accounts Commission, Elma Murray, said: ‘The council has an innovative outlook in delivering a new economic vision for the city, working well with its partners to achieve this, but the council will continue to face significant financial pressures, made more pronounced by COVID-19.
'As well as tough budget choices and managing the impacts of a volatile global oil and gas market, the council must address its underperforming education and housing services.
'The council must build on its recent progress to address how it delivers services, continue to work with communities and develop how it reports on its performance as the city recovers from the pandemic.’
