Torbay Council

Community Partnerships and Torbay Council have agreed that three Neighbourhood Plans will be prepared for Torbay, one each for Torquay, Paignton and Brixham.

Torbay Council was successful in a bid (2011) to take part in the Neighbourhood Planning Front Runners Scheme, to secure £20,000 in funding from central government to help create a Neighbourhood Plan for Brixham.  Subsequent bids for the Torquay and Paignton Neighbourhood Forums have been successful with the fifth wave of frontrunners announced in March 2012.

Individual applications have been received by Torquay, Paignton and Brixham Peninsula Forums for designation as Forums and Areas. A copy of the applications are available on the Neighbourhood Planning Forum & Area Applications webpage.

At the Council meeting of 6 December 2012, the applications for Neighbourhood Areas and Forums were approved. More information can be obtained from;  http://www.torbay.gov.uk/neighbourhoodplanning
