Areas set to go under spotlight
THREE key areas of Torquay will come under the spotlight of the new planning blueprint for the town.
The future of the Torquay gateway between Hamelin Way and Old Woods Hill, Torquay, the town centre and the Babbacombe and Wellswood areas will be highlighted in the new neighbourhood plan.
The gateway area will include Edginswell and its business park, parts of Shiphay and The Willows.
A fourth issue to be tackled by the volunteer steering group will be community engagement and promotion of the new plan.

The group has taken a new direction following workshops with the Princes Foundation.
Its aim is to establish a business plan to progress the plan further and use the work and findings already collated by the sub groups which looked at key areas for change for example jobs and the town centre.
These have now been disbanded but their information will be included in the plan process.
Chairman Susie Colley said: "We haven't wasted our time, we have done a lot of hard work and I thank everyone for their time, effort and commitment."
She said they would be conducting a strengths and weaknesses analysis for the next meeting on May 14.
"We need to have ambition/a vision of Torquay and what we want it to be and to have projects that are visible and feasible to deliver the ambition."
The approach Torquay Gateway is seen as vital to the tourism industry, especially the transport links into and around the area.
The next meeting is on May 14, at 6.30pm at the Royal Torbay Yacht Club. Everyone is welcome.
