Council budget consultation starts


This week, the Council unveiled its draft budget for 2014/15

It is safe to say there are a range of difficult choices to be made against a backdrop of falling national funding for local government.

A consultation has been launched and you can find details of this, along with the details of the proposals being made, by visiting a dedicated section of the Council website.  Just follow this link:

If you fancy having a go at setting your own budget there is also a budget simulator available on that site that you can use to work out your figures.

There will be a consultation event with the Mayor of Torbay in the Rosetor room, Riviera International Conference Centre, Torquay, TQ2 5LZ on Monday 2nd December starting at 6:30pm. Free Car Parking for the event will be available at the RICC.


  1. I have to say I find the budget simulator a bit of a wast of time, because all it allows you to do is adjust different department budgets without the option as to how you would make savings. I am sure we can all think of ways the council could save money but the simulator does not allow for this. Maybe we should come up with some cost saving ideas for the council. I am sure many savings can be made without affecting front line services.
