Read about a range of projects to create a thriving, safe Torquay town centre.
We’re working with partners on a range of projects which focus on delivering a high-quality, welcoming and vibrant town centre and harbourside in Torquay, where all communities can feel safe and where businesses can thrive.
We know some issues must be tackled quickly and that some of the challenges impacting people living and working in the area require a different approach to deliver meaningful and lasting change, and we are taking action to do that. Improvements are ongoing and involve several individual programmes – these include:
The work is overseen by a programme group which meets regularly to drive activity to ensure improvements are delivered. The group is made up of senior officers from Torbay Council, representatives from Devon and Cornwall Police and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and colleagues working in health.
The Health and Wellbeing Board, Torbay Place Leadership Board and Torbay Drug and Alcohol Partnership are given updates and consider how works fit in with other local programmes of activity.
