This area covers the mainly retail area that runs the length of the main shopping routes in Torquay, from The Strand on the sea front up through Fleet Walk and Union Street to Castle Circus. It also includes Belgrave Road and Torre Abbey gardens.

Incidents within the area are therefore influenced by both night time economy and the tourist industry and policing priorities remain flexible to accomodate seasonal demands.
