KOR has worked with the Singapore-based property and investment company Fragrance Group, which is building four new hotels in Torbay, Devon. The investment, which is estimated at £140 million, involves the demolition of existing properties and the construction of the new hotels, which includes a flagship five-star luxury hotel in place of the former Palace Hotel in Torquay.
KOR has provided public relations, strategic communications, public consultation support and media relations on the plans, while liaising closely with local councils, MPs, development agencies, preservation trusts and local, regional and national media.
We have identified and worked with key stakeholders and prepared information materials and consultation websites. KOR has also organised public exhibitions and gathered feedback on each of the proposals, which formed part of a Statement of Community Involvement.
All of the developments have successfully secured planning consent and demolition and construction work began in late 2019.
