Brixington residents can have say on developer cash

An event giving older residents the chance to suggest how to spend money from developers will be held at Brixington Parade on August 8.

East Devon District Council has invited people to give their ideas on how to spend �150,000 - Section 106 money - from recent Exmouth housing developments.

Section 106 money comes from a developer who has ‘compensated’ the community for loss of open space or a public amenity because of building.

Many respondents so far have been younger people calling for a range of things, including a skate park and tennis courts.

At the town’s regeneration committee meeting on Monday, Councillor Vivien Duval-Steer said: “We have received a lot of feedback from children but not much from older people.”

l The exhibition will be in Budgens from 8.30am to 11.30am.
