Torbay Council Statutory Consultation on the Torbay Neighbourhood Plans


The three neighbourhood forums in Torbay (Torquay, Paignton and Brixham Peninsula)have submitted their Neighbourhood Plans to Torbay Council.

The three Neighbourhood Plans and related information can be viewed via

Torbay Council is publicising these plans for consultation and any representations must be received by 09:00 on Monday 18 December 2017.   We would request that, if possible, your representations are emailed directly to and the relevant Neighbourhood Plan identified (Torquay, Paignton or Brixham Peninsula) within the Subject.  Alternatively, responses can be posted to “Neighbourhood Plans”, Spatial Planning, Electric House, Castle Circus, Torquay, TQ1 3DR – again making it clear which plan the comments relate to.

In accordance with the appropriate regulations, all comments should be sent to Torbay Council who will forward correspondence on for consideration by an Independent Examiner(who has not yet been appointed).  

This consultation follows the pre-submission consultations carried out by the forums, which you may have been aware of.  Following those consultations the Plans were reviewed and modified where the forums felt it was appropriate to do so.  This the final chance to have your say before the Plans undergo an independent Examination and therefore all pertinent points should be made now.

It would be helpful, if you choose to make a representation, to include your details and any particular position held (landowner, business, organisation, neighbourhood forum member, resident etc).  If you wish to be notified of the Examination Hearing (if the Examiner(s) considers one should be held), please include this in your response. All representations are likely to be made public (as is the case for those who make representations on planning applications, with signatures and some personal details redacted).
