  • Our vision

In 2021 the Torbay Place Leadership Board spoke with partners, businesses and residents from across Torbay to develop a forward looking, positive and compelling story of Torbay and the three towns of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay.

This was so that together we can put our place on the map. Highlight the great things about the area and talk about the opportunities we can offer to attract investment, create jobs and attract funding from Government.

This is a fresh new approach to be place not organisation led in everything we do. This work builds on the successes of the partnership but also reflects the need to look outwards and think bigger as we seek to bring prosperity for all our residents.

The partnership have listened to what people think about our place, both the good and the bad, to create a shared story that highlights Torbay’s distinctiveness and character. We now have a clear, forward looking and vitally shared story for Torbay and each of the towns that will provide focus for their development and promotion.

We have also looked to widen the leadership of our place with a new Place Leadership Group for Torbay and Town Boards for Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. There is also a need to activate more collaboration within places and across Torbay and we are looking to energise that through the Torbay Together Champions Programme.
