Young people have complained there is nothing to do in Paignton
A Devon council is to press ahead with a bid to win £5m government funding for what it says will be a world-class youth centre.
If Torbay Council is successful, it plans to build the centre at Parkfield House in Paignton.
The bid to the Department for Children, Schools and Families will include plans for a skate park, climbing wall and a performance space for music.
More than 3,000 young people have taken part in talks about the proposals.
The council's decision to apply for the funding comes as a result of the common complaint from young people in the town that there is nowhere to go and nothing to do.
