Unlocking local potential
We welcome new Members
TCDS is a Charitable Community Benefit Society run by its Members
TCDS is perhaps best known for leading the Atmos Totnes project, facilitating the community in proposing the designs for the redevelopment of the former Dairy Crest site in Totnes. It is demonstrating how a community can be creatively engaged from the outset in a development project, and is already being seen by some as national best practice. Atmos Totnes is following a new route to planning – the Community Right to Build Order.
TCDS is rooted in its community. Its Directors are local residents and those working in many different aspects of life within the local community. TCDS and our team and partners have come together to enable the processes connected with the Atmos Totnes initiative, committed to fulfilling the brief of the community.
Alongside its wider activities, over the past few years the Totnes Community Development Society has been developing detailed plans for redevelopment and refurbishment of a range of buildings, including the Mansion in the centre of Totnes and the Brunel Building as part of the Atmos Totnes site next to the railway.
If you would like to talk to staff and Directors of Totnes Community Development Society about the work it does, and see the plans for the Mansion and the Brunel Building, then we will be running two open house events on the times/dates below. Further dates will be provided across the summer.read more
