After having a go at the Highways department re getting and answer within 10 working days I am pleased to announce that I received a full reply to my email at 14:07 today.

Re Cockington lane Torquay
Cockington Lane will be closed in the One Way Section from Cockington Square where the horse and carriages pick up and drop off up to Nut Bush Lane.
The closure is due to essential drainage works and resurfacing of the highway and will take affect from February 8th-17th 2012.
Traffic will be diverted up Vicarage Hill and onto Herbert Road and then onto Nut Bush Lane.
I hope this answers the question raised.
Highways Development Engineer
This is going to affect the Local Link service 62 which goes into Cockington every half hour Monday to Friday from the sea front but leaves along Cockington Lane to Nut Bush Lane. Should be fun on the diversion, Vicarage Lane is very a narrow road.
