Read The latest Plan Here

In September 2011 representatives from all 16 Torbay Community Partnerships met and agreed to the request from Torbay Council to establish Neighbourhood Fora to lead the preparation of Neighbourhood Plans for Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. It was agreed that each town would become individual “Neighbourhoods” each to formulate its own NP, which would in turn form part of and work with, the Council’s Local Plan (formerly known as the Core Strategy) for the whole of Torbay, itself the basis for development decisions over the next up to twenty years.

In October 2011 a meeting attended by the Mayor, Torbay Councillors, Officers, and Community Partnership Chairs was held. Following that meeting Terma of Reference and outline project plans were drawn up and submitted to Government for approval in November. This was – and still is – a unique venture comprising three towns within one unitary authority applying for approval for three NP proposals which would hopefully meld with the eventual Council Local Plan.
