Torquay Liberal Democrats commemorated a fourth summer of closure for Torquay's Pavillion with a “birthday cake”.
Ellacombe Liberal Democrat councillor Cindy Stocks said, “I regularly receive complaints from residents who are concerned that this iconic building is being left to rot by our Conservative-run council. When I checked to see how long it had been closed, I was shocked to learn that this summer will see the fourth year of the Pavilion being locked and barred to the public. I have fond memories of being entertained at this venue by pantomimes, concerts and even a national radio show where my father won a television. It is sad how this building is just left empty”
Tormohun ward councillor Mandy Darling added, “The planning application has been in since before Christmas and there is no sign of it coming before the planning committee. I even tried putting a question at Full Council but it was refused by our Tory administration. It borders upon criminal the way this building is quietly being forgotten by our Tory Mayor”
