Have your Say! East Devon District Council wants your help to make Careful Choices to protect services

Have your Say!

East Devon District Council EDDC  wants to hear your views as they have "careful choices" to make. 

Like all councils, East Devon District Council faces a difficult financial situation and going forward will need to make ‘careful choices’ as it works towards bridging a £2.7 million funding gap over the next 4 years. Budgets have decreased due to cuts in central government funding and over the last decade, the council has lost 60p in every £1 of government funding.

‘Careful choices’ is about achieving a shared understanding of the services which the council has to provide even though the Government is no longer funding them. It’s also about protecting, as best they can, other services which people care most about. EDDC wants your help to make these choices, so they're asking for your views to help inform decision making by the council.

EDDC will circulate a questionnaire to 3000 randomly chosen households across the district. The questionnaire will also be available on the EDDC website from Monday 13th January https://eastdevon.gov.uk/community-engagement/careful-choices/

The consultation will end on Monday 9th March.
