East Devon District Council Plan

The PDF file Council Plan 2012-16 (2014 refresh) (2152KB Portable Document Format - 15 April 2014 - PDF Help) sets out the main priorities for the Council and will form the focus of what the Council aims to achieve in 2012-16.

Our ambition set out in the Council Plan is:

  • Living in an outstanding place
  • Working in an outstanding place
  • Enjoying this outstanding place
  • Outstanding Council

There are four strategies that sit alongside the Council Plan which are available to view on the Plans and Strategies Page.

Shared Services with South Somerset

Under a five year arrangement, which began in March 2010, East Devon District Council is sharing a chief executive with South Somerset District Council.

This brings EDDC savings of £68,000 a year for the chief executive post.  There may be opportunities in the future to make further savings through shared working or other arrangements.
