Seaside specialists tasked with coming up with a vision for the future of Exmouth seafront are seeking the opinions of residents and organisations in the town.

HemingwayDesign has officially launched its online portal where people connected to the seaside resort are being asked for their opinions on the long term future of the Queen’s Drive regeneration site.

The 19-question survey 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.

Wayne Hemingway, of HemingwayDesign, said: “The Queen’s Drive Portal is key to hearing what the views and ideas are of local people, visitors and businesses alike for the future of Queen’s Drive and its value to Exmouth as a whole.

“We guarantee that your views will contribute to the co-design of the Queens Drive site with HemingwayDesign. So tell us what you think and ‘Come Design with Us’.”

According to the seafront consultants, there will be computers set up in Exmouth Town Hall for people to access the survey website and East Devon District Council can be contacted for hard copies as well.

Mr Hemingway added: “Exmouth is a special place and the Queen’s Drive site presents a wonderful opportunity to give the visitor economy a shot in the arm and add to Exmouth’s attractiveness to residents and visitors.

“The Watersports Centre will start to build out next spring and in the meantime the temporary uses in place are being well received.”

Earlier this year the seaside design specialists were employed as external consultants on ‘phase three’ of the scheme which relates to land currently being used as the new ‘Queen’s Drive Space’ and the Harbour View Café plot.

‘Phase one’ of the Exmouth seafront regeneration scheme, the re-routing of the road, is set to commence later this year; The construction of a new watersports centre is ‘phase two’ of the project.

Anyone wanting to take part in the survey should go to www.hemingwaydesign.co.uk/exmouth-opportunities-queens-drive/ or for hard copies email aherbert@eastdevon.gov.uk

Exmouth Town Hall will also be open from 8.30am until 5pm Monday to Friday for people to access free-to-use computers.
