Unique Torbay Sites Available For Tender

8th December 2016

Categories: Latest News

On behalf of Torbay Council, TDA is busy preparing a portfolio of concessions ready for tender to be released for the 2017 season.

The concessions available are a diverse range of unique opportunities including some unusual sites such as Brixham Breakwater Lighthouse and Torquay Recreation Ground Entrance Gate Houses.

In addition to this, there are opportunities such as, boating and floating rights, power boat concessions, mobile catering, stores, shelters, kiosks, beach offices, trampoline sites, mobile car cleaning sites and ice cream concessions.

Torbay’s elected Mayor and Executive Lead for Finance and Regeneration said: “The Council is keen to maximise opportunities that are available across Torbay. The region boasts a high percentage of entrepreneurial businesses and these concessions give locals access to a number of opportunities to explore. The list for 2017 holds some wonderful sites across Brixham, Paignton and Torquay, which would make for some imaginative and desirable business locations.”

The list will be open until 16 January 2017 and successful tenders will be in place and open for business from Easter 2017.

TDA’s Estates Team, working with colleagues from Torbay Council’s Beaches, Harbours and Natural Environment Teams has identified these opportunities across the Bay.

Paul Palmer said: “As the TDA Estates Manager, it is essential that I regularly keep abreast of opportunities that could provide a return and income for the Council. By reviewing data from various sources throughout the year and liaising with my peers in both the public and private sector I am in a position to advise the Council as to a strategy to help maximise the use of their assets. Making these new sites available for tender is an exciting opportunity for Torbay’s residents and businesses. The list is not, however, exhaustive and I would welcome suggestions of other ideas that could be realised on Council owned land.”
