We are committed to creating a prosperous and healthy Torbay and a Council fit to meet the challenges of the future. £21.5 million pounds worth of savings have to be made by 2020, on top of the £62 million already made in the last six years. In order to meet the financial challenges the council will, through its Transformation Programme, develop new ways of working and do things differently. Details of our Transformation Programme were set out in our Efficiency Plan which was submitted to the Government in October 2016.

Following consultation, the Mayor has amended his proposals. These also take account of changes to our funding announced by Government.

The proposals in the documents have been presented to Full Council and will be debated at its future meetings.
