Freedom of Information request 19 February 2018. EDDC seems to be increasing staff during austerity.
“Total number of employees working for EDDC
513 – data as at 28 February 2018.
How many currently working remotely or ‘on the move’ are:
A) based in Exmouth Town Hall -79
B) based in Sidmouth – 280
154 are based elsewhere across the district including THG, Manor Pavilion, Cranbrook, StreetScene depots, parks and gardens, Lymebourne House, Business Centre, Camperdown or may be mobile touching down at both ETH and Knowle.
How will this situation change once the new office opens in Honiton (number):
It remains to be seen exactly but I would expect the majority of the 280 to relocate to Honiton but I will be consulting with all individuals and where there are people who potentially live in Exmouth who can work more sensibly from Exmouth we may make adjustments.”
