A consultation exercise to find out how the people of Exmouth want the town’s seafront regeneration to progress will close next month, it has been revealed.

HemingwayDesign, which has been tasked to come up with a vision for how phase three of Exmouth’s seafront regeneration will look, has confirmed their survey will close on Monday, October 8, at noon.

The 19-question consultation portal covers subjects like attracting people to spend more money on the seafront, opinions on the current ‘Queen’s Drive Space’ as well people’s thoughts on new concepts, food and drink opportunities and landscaping designs.

Now the seaside resort specialist is calling on those wanting to have their say to take part in the survey by October 8.

A spokesperson for HemingwayDesign said: “We would like to thank everyone who has completed our online survey; we’ve had a phenomenal response so far.

“We would say to anyone who has not taken part, ‘there’s still time and we really want to hear from you’ and if you’ve already taken part, then please continue to encourage others to do so as well.

“This is about the future for Exmouth so as well as the regular folks who have their say, we want to hear from those who don’t ordinarily bother with surveys or are too busy.

“Your responses will enable us to get a real feel for what people would like to happen on the site and how it might look.”

‘Phase one’ of East Devon District Council’s regeneration scheme – the realignment of the Queen’s Drive road and car park – got under way earlier this month and it is hoped it will be completed by spring 2019. ‘Phase two’ – the construction of a watersports centre – is set to begin next year.

Anyone wanting to take part in the survey should go to

Those wanting help with filling out the form or who do not have access to a computer can go to Exmouth Town Hall where the town council has free-to-use computers.

Anyone wanting a hard copy should contact Linda Perry by emailing or by ringing 01395 517515.
