To celebrate servicemen and servicewoman past and present, a Remembrance Sunday Ceremony will take place at the Cenotaph in Princess Gardens, Torquay on 12 November 2017.
The Remembrance Sunday Service will take place at 11am.
In order to make the event safe and secure, Torbay Council has been working closely with the Police and is requesting a sterile area for the whole of the seafront area. Therefore, Torbay Road will be closed between the Belgrave Road/Abbey Crescent junctions along to Torquay Pavilion between 9am and 2pm on Sunday.
Torbay Road will have a parking suspension, in both directions, active from 1am on early Sunday morning through to 2pm on Sunday afternoon.
No vehicles will be permitted within the closed road of Torbay Road between the hours of 9am to 2pm (without exception).
Only pedestrians will be permitted through the closure between 9am and 2pm. Local businesses, emergency services, taxis and public transport have all been informed, and diversion routes and appropriate arrangements will be in place during these times.
Once the ceremony has finished and the parade has comfortably passed, Torbay Council will endeavour to reopen the highway as soon as possible.
There is a drop off point for disabled and elderly attendees at Torquay Pavilion via the diversion routes (please follow the diversion route if travelling from Paignton).
Parking will be available at the following car parks:
- Lower Union Lane
- Shedden Hill
- The Terrace Car Park
