East Devon District Council (EDDC) will have to scale back on security fencing repairs at a school because of central funding cuts and frozen council tax, it says.

The council is also planning to cut 12 back-office posts through redundancies and not renewing vacant positions, implement budget cuts across services, and relocate its offices.

It hopes the measures will save it £2.4 million next year.

The all-weather security fencing at Colyton Grammar School will not be repaired, and there will be cuts to car parks. Outdoor lighting on Seaton seafront will also be turned off and no longer maintained.

Setting a "balanced budget" will also mean funds for bus shelters, coastal protection and cemeteries will be affected.

"People will note that the savings we are considering are spread right across the council’s many services," EDDC’s leader, Sara Randall Johnson, said.

"No stone has been left unturned in the search for better value and we have tried to be as fair as possible in the distribution of the savings."

This month, Manchester City Council said it would be making 2000 job cuts.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800359062-ADNFCR
