Alongside the Local Plan produced by Torbay Council, the Paignton Neighbourhood Plan, expresses the views of the community on the location of further development in our neighbourhood and already forms a significant part of deciding any future planning applications in our area.
We are a group of dedicated volunteers from the local community who have worked closely with Torbay Council to complete the new style Neighbourhood Plan specifically covering Paignton town and the related communities in the surrounding areas. Our communities have taken up this exciting opportunity to shape our own future and guide the development that will take place in our area over the next 20 years.
We submitted the Plan to the Council in August 2017 and the Independent Examination stage was completed in November 2018 when it was agreed by Torbay Council the can proceed to Referendum. Further details can be viewed by going to the page headed “The Referendum Plan” in the menu above.
Would you like to have your say about where new jobs and homes should be located ?
Do you feel no one ever listens to your opinion ?
Would you be prepared to volunteer some of your time to help with the new style Neighbourhood Plan and on-going monitoring of outcomes ?
We are well on our way with these task, and would like to hear from you.
How do I join the Forum or find out more?
A big thank you to our supporters
