Torbay residents, organisations and businesses are invited to attend the seventh Mayor's Forum, which is taking place on Thursday 29 October in Torquay.

Hosted by Torbay Mayor Gordon Oliver, the evening event at the Riviera International Conference Centre will give everyone the opportunity to hear about new projects and future plans being carried out by the council and its partners.

The forum will cover a variety of subjects, including the following:

  • An update on the South Devon Highway by the contractors, Galliford Try.
  • Details about the new Torwood Street development by Peter Tisdale from That Group.
  • Information about the EPIC Centre and Hi-Tech Forum from the TDA.

Other topics will be confirmed at a later date.

Mayor Oliver said “I would like to take the opportunity to invite along anyone who has a keen interest in what is going on in the bay.

“I believe this would be an enlightening and interesting presentation on some of the key projects and developments that are taking place within the local community which are helping to boost the economy and the prosperity of Torbay for both residents and visitors.”
