Deputy Mayor Cllr David Thomas, whose Executive Lead portfolio includes spatial planning and who also chairs Blatchcombe Community Partnership, said: "We have already had a number of informal meetings with the community and I am confident that these meetings will be very well attended.
"I urge everyone who wants to attend to book their place as soon as possible in order to avoid disappointment.
"For many years land at Great Parks has not come forward for development. The council and Torbay Development Agency, working closely with landowners and the community, have brought a new dynamic to moving development forward.
"We have worked hard over the last 12 months to remove barriers to development, as well as securing landowner and community agreement on a way forward.
"This approach fits very well with the Government's desire to deliver new homes, as soon as possible, whilst also securing facilities that are needed by the community, such as new local shops, a community park, improvements to roads, new cycle paths and allotments.
"The council and TDA are funding and managing the production of a masterplan for Great Parks Phase 2. An important part of the masterplanning process is to work with the community to get its views on what the new development could look like and what new facilities there should be.
"When completed the masterplan will help bring forward high quality development, with greater certainty of support for those applications that comply with the masterplan."
