Protesters are to take to Exmouth seafront this Saturday, June 17, to demonstrate against East Devon District Council’s (EDDC) seafront redevelopment plans.

Campaign group Save Exmouth Seafront (SES) wants protesters to meet at 11.45am outside Exmouth Fun Park – set to close later this year.

A ‘conga cordon’ will then be formed at noon around the proposed redevelopment area, lasting for around 30 minutes.

After this, there will be stalls at the Harbour View Café – also set to close – along with at the fun park, and the site proposed for a new watersports centre, for SES members to speak to the public.

The protest was announced when both the fun park and café leases were due to expire on August 31.

SES spokesperson Nick Hookway said the subsequent announcement that the café could stay until the end of September would ‘give rise to speculation that management of the Queen’s Drive project by EDDC is inconsistent and done on the hoof’.
