Security at EDDC buildings at Knowle, Exmouth Honiton and Cranbrook costs us £25,000 per year

“East Devon District Council is spending nearly £25,000 a year on private security firms to patrol or protect council owned property.

The figures were revealed at last week’s full council meeting following a question from Cllr Cathy Gardner.

She asked the leader of the council to confirm whether the council uses private security firms to patrol or protect council owned property, and if so where and at what cost.

In response, Cllr Ian Thomas, leader of the council, said: “We use two different security firms which are employed across the corporate stock.”

He said that the council spends £6,363.35 on security at The Knowle HQ in Sidmouth, £5,450.90 at Exmouth Town Hall, £7,200 at the Younghayes Centre in Cranbrook and £4,200 at the East Devon Business Centre in Honiton.”
