People with town planning jobs
in Brixham are working alongside residents to draw up plans for the future of the town centre.
According to the Herald Express, Torbay Council has been awarded £20,000 from the government to put the proposals into action.
Meeting as part of the community's neighbourhood forum, residents held public consultations to put forward ideas to create a new town plan.
Employees from the local authority, which was one of 90 to receive funding, have urged people to have their say during the regeneration process.
Chair of the neighbourhood forum Councillor Jackie Stockman said: "The town plan will cover virtually everything including housing, infrastructure, heritage, industry, health and education - everything we would wish our town to have and to be."
This news comes after the Royal Town Planning Institute called for councils and residents to use pre-existing tools to make their communities a better place to live.
