The Great Torrington Futures Group was set up by the Town Council to support economic development in and around Great Torrington, working with businesses, community groups and public sector organisations. The members of the group are local residents and elected Councillors who are enthusiastic about making changes which will benefit the local economy and the people who live here.
Building on the work of the earlier Town Team, the group meets regularly to review progress, share ideas and firm up proposals for action. We have been granted independence of thought and action while maintaining close links with elected Councillors. Engaging with the local community is a key principle of the Futures Group so you are welcome to comment, and even more welcome to offer your help.
On these pages we will post brief reports of our current projects, all of which are based on local consultation. You can see early signs of our work such as the new information boards and, soon, new bicycle racks in the Town Centre. Other projects may take time to mature.
