MP visit - Sea Defence Scheme

This morning, our local MP, Kevin Foster, came in to school to meet with some children from Unit 4. The children discussed the work they have recently completed on climate change and designing sea defences.

This links with the local consultation on the next steps for the sea defence scheme for Paignton and Preston. Mr Foster spoke to the children about the importance of Democracy, one of our British Values, and our democratic right to have a say in what happens in our local area.

Torbay Council are currently inviting local residents to take part in the consultation process for this - they would like to hear from everyone that uses the seafronts on what they think of the more detailed plans for the sea defence part of the scheme.

Here are the ways to get involved: 

  • Online – You can now view the ideas for both seafronts, complete the consultation and leave comments. The consultation closes at midnight on Sunday 18 June 2023
  • Paper copies of the ideas and the consultation will be available in Paignton Library from Wednesday 7 June. They will be available from the Council reception desk. Completed consultations will need to be returned to the library by Monday 19 June 2023.
