THE final plans for Torquay's Pavilion complex look set to be unveiled on December 16.

Harbour Hotels are to unveil their long-awaited proposals at a public meeting.

The company is proposing a £20million luxury hotel and residential apartments scheme adjacent to the Pavilion, which would be restored to provide the hotel facilities.

The Nicolas James Group, which runs Harbour Hotels, has been in negotiations for the past four years with Torbay Council and leaseholder Marina Developments Ltd over proposals for the 60-bedroom hotel project.

The plan includes improvements to the harbour area fronting the car marina park.

However, there has been controversy over proposals to use Cary Green as a car park for the hotel.

The presentation will be made at the Torquay Neighbourhood Plan public meeting at the Riviera International Conference Centre on December 16 from 6pm. The meeting has been delayed a week because of the mayoral budget meeting on the Monday before.

Susie Colley, chairman of the TNP, said: "The new plans will be presented early on the agenda. Everyone is invited. I don't know any details yet.

"This is a fantastic opportunity which hopefully will open the door to regeneration of that part of Torquay. It's a sign to all developers we are open for business. The group has responded to previous public consultation, they have been ticking all the boxes needed as there is a lot to be considered in this plan.

"Here is a developer who still believes in Torquay and is moving forward with a well thought through and constructive plan."
