The Council is committed to creating a prosperous and healthy Torbay and a Council fit to meet the challenges of the future. It’s a huge task; £18 million worth of savings and new income have to be made over the next three years to achieve a balanced budget - £9.6 million of those budget reductions will be made in 2018/19. That’s on top of the £69 million already made over the last seven years, which is the equivalent of 63% of this year’s £110 million net budget.
The Transformation Programme will deliver over £6 million of savings next year whilst maintaining services to our communities. In addition, almost £1.5 million of savings have been identified as a result of decisions we have made over the past year or changes that we already know about.
