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.

    So much could be done to make this a beautiful venue for music with inside and outside facilities or inside facilities for residents and tourists. Just some imagination required as we don’t need another hotel.

    So long as the maintenance of the estate can be demonstrated as being achievable, affordable and sustainable without taking money from already slashed local service budgets then yes – oldway should remain a place for the public of Paignton to enjoy
