Unlocking local potential
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.
The Trustees of the charity the King Edward VI College Site Foundation are seeking to recruit to two Caretaker roles to support in the maintenance of this vital community facility and listed building in the centre of town.read more
