Paignton Town Centre

Torbay Council has been awarded £13.36 million from the Future High Streets Fund. Details of how it will be spent are scant, with little if any engagement with the community in recent years.

However, a great deal of consultation and engagement did take place prior to the adopted 2015 Paignton Masterplan. That now seems to have been junked. Because, apparantly, masterplans are like buses, they come and go; leading to the council now describing the masterplan as 'historic'.
