We've started a consultation on our draft Community and Corporate Plan 2023-2043. The plan sets out our ambitions over the next twenty years, with all residents and businesses invited to comment on the proposals.

The draft Community and Corporate Plan has been developed using the feedback we received during our first Resident Satisfaction Survey. The results from the survey identified three strategic themes, the priorities we will focus on and the outcomes we want to achieve by 2043.

Each priority within the draft Community and Corporate Plan aims to deliver positive outcomes for all Torbay residents and businesses. From ensuring our town centres are safe and welcoming for all, improving the delivery, affordability, and quality of housing for residents in Torbay, to raising skills levels and developing a year-round economy.

As the plan sets out a long-term vision, younger people are encouraged to have their say on whether or not they agree with the proposals.

The consultation is now live online and closes on Sunday 29 October.

There will be opportunities throughout the consultation period for residents and businesses to speak to councillors and officers face-to-face about the plan. Residents who are unable to access the information online, will be able to view the plan and complete a paper copy of the consultation survey at the ‘Have Your Say Engagement Event’ taking place in Paignton library on Friday 29 September between 10am and 4pm.

Cllr Dave Thomas, Leader of Torbay Council, said; “We want to see a healthy, happy, and prosperous Torbay. We want to be a council that delivers for our people and the place that we are proud to call home. By putting residents at the heart of our Community and Corporate Plan we can ensure Torbay is a place where everyone can feel included, valued, and benefits from investment.”

Cllr Chris Lewis, Deputy Leader of Torbay Council, said: "Firstly I’d like to thank everyone who took part in our first Residents Satisfaction Survey. The results gave us a real insight into what matters the most to our local communities and helped us to develop our draft Community and Corporate Plan. We now want to ask our residents and businesses to let us know if they agree or disagree with the priorities. All responses will be considered before a final version of the plan is adopted and published.”

Take part in the consultation.
