Welcome to the Brixham Town Council website.

The Town of Brixham is situated at the southern end of Torbay and forms part of the Borough of Torbay, which also includes the towns of Torquay and Paignton.

Brixham was originally developed as two separate areas of settlement, one around St Mary’s Church; known as Cowtown and one around the harbour; known as Fishtown.  Brixham is widely known as a fishing town and is one of the busiest fishing ports in the UK.  It is also a place full of character, charm, culture and is a beautiful town to live, work and visit.

Brixham boasts the stunning headland and national nature reserve; known as Berry Head, the popular outdoor lido; know as Shoalstone Pool and has an abundance of independent shops, restaurants and cafes.

Keeping up to date

We have already incorporated an archive of the Council minutes from meetings January 2011 onwards and will continue to upload the latest dates and minutes from all the Council meetings onto this site.

We will use the News and Events column to keep you informed about local information and other items which we think are important for you to know. The column will also carry details about what’s happening in the area and we encourage the organisers of events to let us know, using the contact form, so we can provide further publicity for your activities.
