This has also led to some vacant positions on the steering group and anyone interested in taking up any of these roles should contact the newly elected Communications Officer in the first instance at
Newly elected Chair, Leon Butler, has said ‘I am confident we can now move forward with the two main tasks: firstly ensuring our policies are fit for purpose and then consulting with the whole of Torquay on our draft plan’ he added ‘I see my role as facilitating peoples input and challenging decisions so that our Plan makes a real difference to peoples quality of life’.


As the work by South West Water in Abbey Park goes into its final stages, the Friends of Abbey Park and Meadows would like to hear how you would wish to see the park in the future.

They are looking at the whole area of the park from Torbay Road back to the Riviera International Centre, and have taken into account the responses to the Mayor’s survey.
Much of the park is now looking tired and not working as hard as it could to provide facilities for all ages.

See more details here and click here to complete the Torbay Community Development Trust survey.

We would like to get input from a wide range of ages, not only from those who live in Torbay, but also from visitors. So if you have friends or relations who are regular visitors to the Bay, please make them aware of this survey.

Remember that we will we be having our harbour sub group meeting on 13th March (6pm Torbay Yacht Club) where we will be joined by Torquay Harbourmaster Kevin Mowat.

Meeting Update

February 6th  2013

Really positive meeting at the RICC on Monday 4th February .

New Task and finish groups set up to revist the Tourism, Transport and Harbour /Night time economy issues.

Results of the questionaire show that we need to engage with the younger generation more so anyone with any ideas please let us know.

Hopefully, they will benefit most if we get this Plan right!
