Location and Transport

Torbay, known as the English Riviera, comprises three
towns: Torquay, Paignton, and Brixham. With 22 miles
of coastline and 48% of its land area being countryside
or with an important landscape designation, it is one
of the country’s top 10 visitor destinations welcoming
4.5m visitors every year.
Torbay has a population of c.135,000 and has an
increasingly skilled workforce; increasing numbers
of small and micro businesses; and a large catchment
population. The recent £110m investment in the A380
South Devon link road, directly connecting Torbay
with the M5 at Exeter, has significantly reduced travel
times locally and regionally making the Torbay area
an increasingly attractive place to live and work
with improving the connections to national and
international markets.
The site is located within the Paignton area of Torbay.
The land at Little Blagdon Farm was transferred from
Devon County Council to Torbay Council upon Torbay
Council becoming a Unitary Authority on 1 April 1998.
