Throughout this survey we asked you to think about 'your local area'.

Over the last decade, Mid Devon District Council has delivered a range of efficiencies totalling over £4m whilst continuing to deliver the key services.

Despite this the Council continues to face budgetary pressures from issues like the cost-of-living crisis, the longer-term impacts of Covid-19, increasing requirements from Government and increasing demand for public services.

However, the money that we have to pay for these services is reducing, creating a budget gap of over £5m across the next 5 years. Each year the Council has to balance our spending against money available in the form of Government Grants, Council Tax and Business Rates. This is always a difficult task and it is important that we focus on our priorities when balancing our budget. Mid Devon District Council spends approximately £17m each year providing a diverse range of services including:

  • £2.2m - Recycling and waste collection
  • £0.5m - Street cleansing
  • £0.3m - Accommodation for the homeless
  • £1.4m - Leisure services
  • £2.0m - Planning and enforcement services
  • £0.9m - Parks and open spaces
  • £1.0m - Public health, safeguarding and community safety
  • £6.0m - Corporate Services (such as HR, finance, legal, and customer services)
  • £0.9m - Revenues and benefits
  • £1.6m - Property maintenance

Please note that Mid Devon District Council is NOT responsible for the following services:

  • Highways (including potholes)
  • Schools or academies
  • Social care for children or adults
  • Policing
  • Hospitals
  • On-street parking
  • Flood management
  • Libraries
  • Care services
