Cockington Craft Centre

As well as project leading the renovation and new-build, TDA won the bid to operate and promote Cockington Court as a visitor attraction and innovation centre on behalf of the landowner, Torbay Council.

The £2.85m Cockington Court regeneration project, completed in 2011, was funded by the South West Regional Development Agency, the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (through the Sea Change initiative) Torbay Council and TDA.

Torbay was successful in bidding for ERDF and DCMS funding, which backs up the sustainability of the project in delivering economic benefits for a deprived population as well as restoring a much-loved heritage site. 

Cockington is making a renewed contribution to the Torbay economy and environment. Measurable benefits are: Refurbished floor space 848m2; new floor space 492m2. Over the next 20 years the anticipated outputs are: 299 additional jobs, 117 new businesses, 201 businesses assisted, £9.6m additional Gross Value Added.

The project is strengthened by partnership with the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, Dartington Hall Trust, Creative Torbay, South Devon College and the English Riviera Tourism Company to establish Cockington Court as a premier craft centre.
