Many people are concerned that the work to convert the mansion into a private luxury hotel should have begun in January 2013. The costs of maintaining the grounds and the buildings are falling on local council taxpayers or being taken from a fund set up following the sale of the Fernham nursing home and Fernham woods to McCarthy & Stone. Meanwhile new costs have fallen on taxpayers for accommodating services previously housed at Oldway, while rent-paying tenants have been evicted. 

Petition to the Mayor:

I, the undersigned call upon Torbay Council to Keep Oldway for the Public by setting up a Community Trust and inviting applications for Trust members to take over control of the Oldway Estate.
