Our Paignton Plan

The current Paignton Neighbourhood Plan took eight years to create. It became a legal planning policies document after overwhelming support from a referendum held in May 2019.

A lot has changed since that plan was conceived (Covid-19, austerity, and the declaration of a climate emergency, to name a few).

The plan is in need of an update. That process has commenced as of November 2020.

Here's the Our Paignton Plan map.

Phase 2

We have developed an interactive Google map that allows people to engage with the steering group in a way that was not possible when the Paignton Neighbourhood Plan was originally created.

What we are doing right now is adding to the map each area that formed the basis of the current plan.

Then we are cross-relating those places to the policies that are defined in the current plan.

What we would like you to do is send comments back to us of ANYTHING in Paignton that interests you and/or of which you have specific knowledge.

Please go to the map, get an idea of how we are building up information and desires, and click on the purple button (above the map) to send us your thoughts.

This is very much a work in progress, and it's early days, but we expect progress to be made very quickly. 

The more you tell us of what you think and what you want, the better we can make the plan, and in turn, the more power we have to improve our town. It's up to us all.

Phase 1

Phase 1 was the formation of an initial working party that has commenced the process of analysing the current plan and seeking advice on how to get from where we are to where we want to be.

Whilst a small working group can manage and drive the process forward, it is very important that we have ongoing input and converation with all Paigntonians. Our technology platform is allowing us to do just that.
