Newton Abbot

Coastal Team

Newton Abbot is a historic market town, with a heritage built around its markets, Great Western Railway, leather & woollen mills, ball clay production, Stover Canal and the racecourse. It is situated on the Teign estuary and the River Lemon but until now it has largely turned its back on the river.

It is an ambitious town which positively embraces sustainable development and change, whilst respecting the town’s significant historical roots and natural assets. Newton Abbot should be a creative and distinctive town where residents are supported and welcomed into the community. The future of the town should be founded on the principles of creativity, accessibility and sustainability; seeking to ensure the highest possible standards in all forms of development. The Newton Abbot CCT will be aspiring to achieve all of these things whilst having a focus on the economic enhancement, growth and sustainability of the area.

The Coastal Community Team is made up of representatives from the following organisations:

  • Teignbridge District Council – both Officers and Councillors
  • Newton Abbot Town Council
  • Newton Abbot Town Team
  • Newton Abbot Community Interest Company
  • Visit South Devon Community Interest Company
  • Devon County Council

The mix of businesses, groups and organisations on the CCT will make sure that there is a Newton Abbot focused group with a strong voice for all issues facing the town, providing a holistic, coordinated approach.
