Utility costs to date, listed by year, for the two sites:

 

We do not yet have full annual cycle of utility costs for Blackdown House
and therefore not for the combined Honiton and Exmouth offices.  At the
full year of operation for Blackdown House to February 2020 the council
will produce a closure report for the relocation project that gives a full
cost analysis including utility costs for the current offices and compared
to previous costs for the Knowle that will be submitted to Cabinet at that
time. 

 

I hope this information is helpful but, if you feel dissatisfied with the
way we have responded to your request, please contact our Monitoring
Officer, Mr Henry Gordon Lennox, to request an internal review
