East Devon District Council says it is to hold an extraordinary meeting to discuss the future of two Exmouth seafront businesses which are set to close imminently.

The council confirmed its chief executive was considering a request for a meeting to discuss the future of Exmouth Fun Park, set to close next week, and the Harbour View Café, set to close at the end of September.

A spokesperson said: “We will announce shortly when that meeting will be held.”

The sites of those businesses are needed for phase three of EDDC’s proposed three-phase seafront redevelopment plans, but there is currently no developer in place for this phase, and it was revealed last week that the site has not yet been remarketed to developers.

EDDC said last week that sites would be boarded up ‘for a time’, but that temporary attractions could be provided.
