Exmouth residents will be asked over the next few weeks what they think about radical plans for a new seafront leisure and watersports complex.

The ‘Exmouth Splash’ development is between the old Lifeboat Station and the Maer, in Queen’s Drive, and planned are two large play areas, a public square, shops, amenities and a new watersports hub.

This would offer hiring, training and retail facilities for all the water sports popular in Exmouth.

Architect’s drawings and full descriptions of each element are now available online, and residents have a chance to fill in an online questionnaire.

Visitors to the Exmouth Christmas Cracker on December 1 will also be able to quiz district councillors between 10am and 1pm.

And from Monday, December 3, all the proposals will be on display in the former Thomas Tucker shop window, with questionnaires available from Exmouth town hall.

The plans will also be on display in early January in the lobby of Exmouth Pavilion, as well as being sent by post to a random sample of residents and businesses.

Proposals include holiday accommodation to the north-west of the site as well as plans to remove the Harbour View café building to make way would for a new two-storey café and/or restaurant.

A new safety tower could be part of any re-development.

Car parking for 200 would be moved to the rear of the site, with the current road moved back from the seafront to allow better access to the beach and play areas.

Cllr Andrew Moulding, chairman of the Exmouth Regeneration Board, said: “It’s great to see these plans finally go on show to the public.

“They are strongly rooted in the vision for the town as set out in the Exmouth Masterplan, so it will be really interesting to find out what residents and visitors alike think.

“We welcome thoughts and comments from across the board; old and young, residents and businesses, from those who know Exmouth well to those who may only visit occasionally.

“This is a really important step in securing a bright future for the town so it is important to get it right now.”
