Bideford's Regeneration Journey

Through our activities, we facilitate and encourage a strategic, coordinated and joined-up approach towards improvement and regeneration in Bideford with an aim to:  

  • Pull together key bodies from across the town and strengthen a shared vision for the town's future. 
  • Ensure that wider voices are heard and can feed into the process and vision to ensure a brighter future for the community and economy.

Progress through Partnership

In 2022, Devon County Council established its Urban Renewal programme to support transformational growth in eight coastal and market towns in Devon, including Bideford. Torridge District Council, working with Devon County Council, has created a regeneration board to look holistically at future regeneration and development opportunities for Bideford's town centre.

The Regeneration Board

  • A unique public/private sector partnership 
  • A facilitator: supporting collaboration and coordination to focus on delivery. 
  • An independent group made up of town representation from:
  1. Local Businesses including Bideford Town Centre Partnership
  2. Councils including Torridge District Council, Bideford Town Council, Devon County Council 
  3. Community including Bideford College, TTVS and Bideford Bridge Trust, Youth representation (Aged 16 – 18) 

We encourage active participation...
