A ‘vacant’ area of land behind Exmouth Rowing Club could be converted into a temporary car park.
East Devon District Council (EDDC) has submitted a planning application to convert the land behind the former lifeboat station, in Queen’s Drive, into a pay and display car park for ‘two to three’ years.
If given the go-ahead, 13 new spaces would be created and a container belonging to the lifeboat organisation would be relocated with a ticket machine, signage and barriers being installed.
In the application’s planning support statement, EDDC engineering assistant Hal Furneaux-Gotch said: “Car parking is at a premium in Exmouth, with the majority of public car parks well used throughout the year and largely full in the peak summer season.
“The proposed site’s proximity to the beach, as well as indoor leisure facilities and temporary events space mean that there will be much demand for parking in this location.”
EDDC planners will have the final say on the application.
