This may come to the fore soon as a new Torbay council forms; Clark Osborne the owner of Torquay United is expected to unveil new scaled down plans for the land by Riviera Way on a former refuse tip designated for sports and community use known as Nightingale Park.

Plans for the station were approved by Torbay Council on the 27 November 2016 for the construction of a new railway station to include the following: Two single sided station platforms, provision of a footbridge between platforms, elevated walkway and access ramps, cycle spaces, extended footpath along Riviera Way, lighting and CCTV, and platform furniture to include shelter and signage . The proposed development to which the application relates is situated within 10 metres of relevant railway land (P.2016/0078).

The approval expires in November unless a shovel is put into the ground so this might concentrate minds.

^That application failed but Torbay are having another go taking into account recomendations.

Dated 17 June 2020 now with lifts instead of ramps. Old plans out of time so a new planning submission will have to be made. Maybe hoping for the nod this time before submitting new plans.

So how much will that bump the cost up?  And then the locals won't like the plans because the lift towers are overbearing and an eyesore.

It was the 2016 bid that failed.  This new one good to see.
