Your views on the future of Exmouth seafront can still make a difference – the final public consultation session for the proposed water sport centre is being held this evening, Wednesday, November 1.

Grenadier’s public consultation event is from 5pm to 9pm at Ocean, Queen’s Drive, Exmouth.

‘Excellent feedback and constructive ideas’ have so far come out of two public consultations, said the 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.

Peter Quincey, director of Grenadier, said: “The turnout to the consultation events so far has been great and we are hoping this will continue for our final event on Wednesday.

“It has been excellent to receive feedback direct from the community with constructive ideas and considered views being put forward – we hope the feedback will keep coming.”

He added: “Having an online comment form available for the community means that anyone unable to attend any of the consultation events will still have the opportunity to put forward their views and we hope as many people as possible will go online to have their say on the proposed scheme.”

The developer said it will submit a formal planning application at the end of November once the public consultation has ended.

Mr Quincey said comments collected from the website and at the public consultation events - two held at the end of October and the final session open to all this evening – would ‘help shape our plans prior to a formal planning application being submitted’.

As part of the consultation process a new website shared computer generated and architect images of the proposed water sport centre.

This included a ‘flythrough’ computer generated video with an aerial view of the proposed finished design.

A spokesperson for Grenadier said future information and updates will be shared publicly via the website.

“The developer is encouraging the community to check back regularly to ensure they have access to the latest information on the proposed water sports centre,” said the spokesperson.

“The website includes details on the scheme, current designs, information on the consultation process and a fly through animation.”

Proposed plans 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.
