‘We need to get on with delivering this site for the people of Exmouth’ – EDDC to consider two years of ideas to finish seafront redevelopment

Councillors will next week get to see designer and consultancy concepts for the final phase of Exmouth seafront’s redevelopment.

The firms’ consultancy work has been carried out over the last two years, said the district council.

East Devon District Council (EDDC) said ‘councillors will meet on 5 February 2020 to consider the recommendation to take Queen’s Drive phase 3 into a formal marketing exercise and complete the visioning/information gathering process’.

Cllr Geoff Pook, EDDC’s portfolio holder for asset management, said: “We now need to complete the marketing, make some bold decisions and get on with delivering this site for the people of Exmouth.”

East Devon District Council said the report sets out proposals for the use of Queen’s Drive and seafront area.

An EDDC spokesperson said: “It considers a range of development and investment strategies for delivering positive change and recommends that the site is formally marketed to provide information about the interest in delivering mixed leisure uses on the site.”

Phase one was a new road and car park. Phase two, of watersports centre, café, public space and small retail units, is under way.
