This consultation is now closed.  The final date for feedback was Friday 14 December 2018.

My draft proposals for the Council’s revenue and capital budget for 2019/2020 have been published and I now want to hear from you and understand your views.

The Transformation Programme will deliver over £1.4 million of savings next year whilst maintaining services to our communities. My proposed budget includes a Council Tax increase of 2.99% in line with current inflation levels. We have however had to identify proposals for service change, service reductions, income generation and efficiencies of £3.1 million in order to put forward a balanced budget as we are required to do by law.

I welcome everyone’s thoughts on these proposals and how we can continue to deliver as many valued services as possible, alongside those we have to provide by law. Your views will be listened to and will be taken into consideration. I would also welcome all ideas you have on how the Council can meet the on-going financial challenges in future years.

Gordon Oliver
Elected Mayor of Torbay
