Designs published for public consultation on new Water Sports Centre for Exmouth


Developer Grenadier’s public consultation over the future of Exmouth’s former Fun Park site has come to an end, but online feedback via a dedicated website can be submitted until midnight on Friday, November 10.

You still have a few more days to have your say on the future of Exmouth seafront because online feedback is invited until midnight on Friday.

Developer Grenadier’s proposal for a water sports centre on Queens Drive, home of the former Fun Park, was showcased at the end of last month when the developer launched a trio of public consultation sessions, inviting public input.

The open sessions have come to an end, but online feedback via a dedicated website can be submitted until midnight on Friday, November 10.

After the final online comments are received, the developer will publicly share any changes to its proposal before a planning application is submitted.

Peter Quincey, Grenadier director, said: “We were really pleased with the attendance across the three consultation events, with many of the Exmouth community coming along to meet with our team, view the proposals and offer feedback. We also had an excellent response to our dedicated consultation website which was also really encouraging.

“Whilst we are still collating and digesting comments from the large number of feedback forms submitted at the events and online, there is still time to leave feedback via the online feedback form which is available until midnight on Friday 10 November

“In terms of next steps, we will continue to fully review all of the feedback offered by the community and will be updating our website in the coming weeks to inform the community about any changes we may be making to the scheme ahead of our final planning application which we plan to submit at the end of November.”

As part of the consultation process, Grenadier launched a new website of computer generated and architect images of the proposed water sport centre, plus a ‘flythrough’ video of a computer generated aerial view of the suggested finished design.

Plans put forward for the former Fun Park site shared at the consultation included a wood and glass building - similar in design and finish to Exmouth’s RNLI lifeboat station, and Ocean, separate smaller wooden eateries and open areas of paving and grass.
