We are facing one of our most challenging periods in recent years. We are managing the impact of ongoing austerity with the current COVID-19 pandemic. Our spending is going up to meet the emergency response costs of the pandemic and the income we receive, which supports the services we deliver, has reduced massively. As the pandemic continues, we estimate the virus will cost us around £8million in expenditure and lost income in 2021/22.
It’s not all bad news though - we’ve made significant steps in our Children’s Services improvement journey and we have attracted millions of pounds for town centre regeneration.
These budget proposals are presented in a period of extreme uncertainty. It’s difficult to estimate how much income we will receive as a Council next year or how much funding we will receive from central Government
Please take the time to have a look at our budget proposals and tell us what you think. We want to understand how these budget proposals impact on you and how we can work together to help Torbay thrive.
