Sarah Gosling

BBC News Online

Sixty council employees have now made the "milestone" move into the new "Riverside" building in Bideford, as part of Torridge District Council's plan to deliver £1m of savings.

The council have now realised £878,000 in savings against the £1,000,000 target.

The move is part of the Council's "Transforming Torridge" plan, in which all council services will move to one site to improve efficiency and decrease expenditure ahead of planned government funding cuts.

Cllr Jane Whittaker, leader of Torridge District Council said: "The overall aim is to continue to find ways to save money in the face of reducing Central Government grants but without compromising the level of service we offer residents and visitors".

BBC Radio Devon

Torbay, Torridge and North Devon have been highlighted for their low average salaries with workers being paid more than £7,000 below the national average.

The Social Market Foundation study into coastal communities also claims Torridge is in the 10 worst authorities for unemployment among 16 to 64-year-olds.

The UK's coastal communities are among the country's worst off for earnings, employment, health and education, the report for the BBC has found.

Devon coastal community among worst off in UK, report finds

BBC Breakfast

The UK's coastal communities are among the country's worst off for earnings, employment, health and education, a report for the BBC has found.

The Social Market Foundation said the economic gap between coastal and non-coastal places has grown. Average wages are £3,600 a year lower in these "pockets of deprivation", according to the think tank.

Meanwhile, the minister for coastal communities has announced £40m in funding to help coastal areas.

The report, produced for BBC Breakfast, found that five of the 10 local authorities in the UK with the highest unemployment rate for the three months to March 2017 were coastal.

These were Hartlepool, North Ayrshire, Torridge in Devon, Hastings, South Tyneside and Sunderland.

It also found those in employment in coastal areas were likely to be paid less.
