Slapton Line - Car Park & Toilets

Torcross Tank Car Park and toilets are open again for business.
Everyone has been working incredibly hard since the damage brought by Storm Emma and the Beast from the East.
Repair works have been coordinated by local contractor Landmarc and have involved the removal of approximately 300 tonnes of shingle and 60 tonnes of rubble from the lower section of the car park and 40 tonnes of tarmac to start necessary resurfacing work.
The car park machine is currently out of order while storm damage is being fixed.
Please see signs on machines to check when parking charges do apply.

The Memorial car park remains closed as work to address the significant erosion that took place in this location continues.
Works include the generation of some additional capacity to compensate for the loss of approximately 30 spaces, in the northern section, as well as complete loss of the overflow. The works are scheduled to be completed before Easter.

The toilets at Torcross also sustained damage, resulting in sand and shingle within the block. This has now been swept out, power washed and the drains unblocked. Toilet cleaners, then cleaned the blocks by hand to finish off.
The toilets at the Memorial car park continue to have work carried out on them to repair the damage.

Possible Disruption to Waste Collection

Due to the severe weather there may be some disruption to South Hams District Council’s refuse and recycling collections.
They are asking residents to please leave their refuse or recycling out as usual and they will try to collect it, if it is safe to do so.
If they are unable to collect, they will do their best to collect any missed refuse or recycling before the end of the working week, so please leave your collection at the kerbside. However, if they do not manage this they will run an extra collection service on Saturday.
At this stage, they do not expect any disruption to collections between Tuesday and Friday.
The Council’s website and social media will be updated regularly with local information.
