Torridge District Council is consulting on plans for 2016-20 against a cut in Government funding.

Torridge District Council is consulting on its new four year strategic plan.

The proposals for 2016-20 have been developed around four goals: the economy, communities, the environment and customer focused service delivery.

The plan has been put in place as goverment grants shrink by almost 40 per cent from £6.4million to £3.9m.

The council said it needs to prioritise key objectives in line with what councillors want to achieve.

A consultation has been launched to give people the opportunity to comment and contribute to the final version of the plan.

Councillor Jane Whittaker said: "This new Strategic Plan was developed through a number of visioning sessions with councillors and senior officers; it sets out what we will strive to achieve, together with our partners, local businesses, communities and residents, over the next four years.

"What we'd like to know is whether you think we've got it right.

"Whether you live in Torridge, work in Torridge, or are just visiting Torridge, our council exists to service your needs, so your views are important to us.

"We really want to hear back from as many people as possible by asking them to complete a short survey that we can then use to produce the final version of the plan."
