Corbyn Head is a cliff top recreational area, currently housing closed public conveniences which sits just above Corbyn Sands Beach. Corbyn Sands is one of Torquay's main beaches and lies just South of Torre Abbey Sands. Corbyn Head is reputed to have been the inspiration for Baldy's Head in Agatha Christie's novel Postern of Fate.
The centre of Torquay is within half a mile as is the Harbour and Marina with its many amenities. Torquay is situated in the heart of the English Riviera and located in South Devon's beautiful Bay, surrounded by scenic Countryside and stunning Coastline. The area is well connected with the South Devon link road (A380) connecting Torbay to Exeter and the M5 Motorway network beyond. Torquay is also connected by a rail network to Exeter.
Torbay Council - represented by the TDA – is proposing to redevelop the current public convenience building to create a restaurant/bar/cafe premises, subject to planning and available to let. The artists impression provides an initial visual idea to how the unit may look however planning consent will need to be secured for any scheme; this will also cover outside space and car parking. The property is being offered to be let on a fully repairing and insuring commercial lease. The length of lease and further terms are to be negotiated.
Torbay Council will approve a scheme jointly with successful applicant, with a view to submitting plans to obtain planning permission. A rental level will be negotiated and reflect the final scheme and space available. It is envisaged that Torbay Council will develop the property with the incoming tenant, receiving the building in a shell condition. The new tenant will be responsible for the fit out, furnishings, decoration and equipment for the new unit.
