East Devon District Council (EDDC) has announced some of the temporary attractions earmarked for the former Exmouth Fun Park site in Queens Drive could be in place by the spring bank holiday (Saturday, May 26).

New temporary attractions on Exmouth seafront could be in place by the end of May, the district council has announced.

Planning permission to site facilities, including pop-up outlets, a Jurassic-themed play park and a possible big screen TV was granted, with conditions, at a meeting of East Devon District Council’s (EDDC) development management committee this week.

Now the council has announced that some of the attractions could be in place, on the former Exmouth Fun Park site in Queens Drive, by the spring bank holiday (Saturday, May 26).

As per the planning permission, they would then be in place until March 2019.

Councillor Phillip Skinner, EDDC portfolio holder for the economy and chairman of Exmouth Regeneration Board, said: “I’m really looking forward to the temporary attractions that have been approved for the seafront and it means Exmouth will be really buzzing with activity for residents and visitors alike this summer.”
