Community Consultation – Transport plans for Torbay

Torbay Council is asking local residents for their views on transport plans
for the Bay. We here at Torbay Community Development Trust would like
to ask you to participate and to circulate widely to ensure your voice is
heard and that transport systems are designed well to meet all our needs.

The comprehensive plans cover everything from addressing climate
change to helping people to keep active, healthy and to thrive. You can
have your say on public transport, cycle lanes, scooters, cars and ferries,
as well as any ideas you may have to support Torbay Council’s ongoing commitment to the Devon Climate Emergency.

Members of the public are being asked to complete an online survey which asks questions which will inform three key strategic transport projects for the Bay:Local Transport Action Plan (2021-2026) – A new 5 year plan which includes a range of key transport projects to improve access for all
transport users in a variety of ways to be delivered over 5 years.
Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) – A more
detailed walking and cycling plan which is the first of its kind for Torbay
and includes short, medium and long term priorities for improvement, in response to evidence.Active Travel Fund schemes (Phase 2) – Funding
has been provided to deliver a number of active travel interventions –
while some consultation was done on this before, there will be further engagement with residents before the projects are delivered. An
immediate opportunity to deliver a small number of active travel
interventions as agreed to and in response to the Government’s Active
Travel Fund.
Leader of Torbay Council Steve Darling said: “With plans for a new train
station at Edginswell and new national funding opportunities coming up for innovative transport solutions for Torbay to help more people walk and
cycle, there has never been a better time to have your say and help shape
local transport strategy.

“We are absolutely committed to working with the local community to

address climate change, while also helping people to keep active and ensure
local transport is as efficient as can be.

“We know how essential getting more active can be for our wellbeing,

especially during these difficult times – whether this is walking or cycling –
so as well as being important to protect the environment, we want residents
to tell us what we can do to help people become more active and improve
their health.”

Councillor Mike Morey, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, Environment
and Culture for Torbay Council said: “Please do take the time to give us your views – this will help us set the priorities for our local transport over the
next few years.

“The Council has re-orientated its transport delivery priorities for more sustainable and active travel. This is particularly in response to the Council’s corporate priorities in relation to healthy communities, tackling climate

change as well as responding to the public.”

Police Request for Residents of the St Luke’s area.

Unfortunately there have been reports from various residents of the St Luke’s area of breaches of the current Covid 19 regulations.

Some residents have been asked for directions to holiday accommodation. There have been gatherings of groups of people showing no regard for social distancing. There has been an increase in litter around the area.

The SLRA has alerted the Police and the local Council.

The main message we have been asked to give residents is to report any anti-social behaviour immediately.

The quickest way to report is on-line or otherwise call 101.

The following link has been recommended. https://www.devon-cornwall.police.uk

Click on CONTACT US

In bottom right hand corner is a “NEED HELP BOX”

This allows residents to chat live with a member of the Policing Team.

Always start by stating that the Neighbourhood Team headed up by Inspector Ian Stevens has advised reporting via the live chat.

The Police may not always be able to respond immediately but request that what ever is being reported is given a log number.

Although the SLRA has been very active in reporting concerns raised by the St Luke’s Residents, the Police need up to date on-going evidence in order to sort any problems out as soon as possible so it is vital that any antisocial behaviour is reported and logged.

The Police and the local Council have been very supportive of the issues already raised by the SLRA.
