Together with the new Local Plan produced by Torbay Council, the Paignton Neighbourhood Plan, once adopted, will express the views of the community on the location of further development, and will form a significant part of deciding any future planning applications in our area.

We are a group of dedicated volunteers from the local community working closely with Torbay Council to produce a new style Neighbourhood Plan specifically covering Paignton town and the related communities in the surrounding areas. Our communities have an exciting opportunity to shape our own future and guide the development that will take place in our area over the next 20 years.

We have recently submitted the Plan to the Council which can be viewed by going to the page headed “The Submitted Plan” in the menu above.

Or you can view the documents here:

Would you like to have more say about where new jobs and homes should be located ?

Do you feel no one ever listens to community opinion ?

Would you be prepared to volunteer some of your time to help with the new style Neighbourhood Plan ?

We are well on our way with the task, and would like to hear from you.
