TORBAY mayor Gordon Oliver will host a fourth Mayor's Forum with the theme of regeneration and job creation in the Bay.
The forum on Thursday, October 3, is billed as an opportunity for all those who are passionate about improving life in the Bay to hear about new projects and future plans from the council and its partners.
This time attendees will be invited to a 45-minute tour of the newly-reopened Torre Abbey at 6pm.
The newly-restored building houses state-of-the-art exhibitions and interactive galleries and one of the largest fine art collections in the south west.
Those who have pre-booked should meet at the Abbey Clock Tower at 6pm.
The forum will get under way at the Riviera International Conference Centre from 7pm covering, among other topics, updates on inward investment, a Geopark Conference in 2016, progress on Devon Studio School and the pharmaceutical manufacturing unit, education and employment, South Devon Link Road, Abbey Sands development at the former Palm Court site, the proposed Torquay Pavilion and Marina car park hotel development.
Mayor Oliver said: "I am very pleased to be hosting this fourth event and have the opportunity to showcase Torbay and its achievements including the wonderful restoration of Torre Abbey.
"The last forum was very well attended and we hope by again holding this event in the evening more local people will be able to attend.
"It will be an opportunity to hear about the council's progress on our key plans and key partnership activities to regenerate and improve job prospects for the people of Torbay as well as learn about some of the new plans we have coming up in 2013/14."
