We’re delighted that the Torbay Council’s Cabinet has formally adopted their new Torbay Heritage Strategy. At the beginning of 2020, Torbay Council in partnership with Torbay Culture and TDA commissioned HAP to update the local area’s heritage strategy. The new strategy is the result of our review of heritage across the locality.

HAP carried out consultations with over 800 people and numerous organisations and partnerships – including local museums, heritage organisations, National Trust and the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark. We also worked closely with Historic England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund

‘Torbay Council is committed to culture and heritage being part of our future ambitions. These things matter to people in Brixham, Paignton and Torquay, and the adoption of this new strategy and the forthcoming action planning – supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Torbay Culture – will play a valuable role in taking this forwards’

Councillor Swithin Long, Cabinet Member, Economic Regeneration, Tourism & Housing, and Councillor Mike Morey, Cabinet Member, Infrastructure, Environment & Culture
