Heritage centre at Elizabeth Hall
I have always been led to believe that the Imperial Recreation Ground had, many years ago, been given to the local people for use as a recreation area.
I have always been led to believe that the Imperial Recreation Ground had, many years ago, been given to the local people for use as a recreation area. If that is correct, then nothing should ever be built on it.
A good alternative for a heritage centre would be the Elizabeth Hall. It has parking, toilets and is ideally placed for visitors. Instead of letting this historical building deteriorate, it could be revamped internally and put to good use.
Exmouth used to be a lovely town, but it has lost much of its charm. The quaint streets, a working dock and Shelley Road - all gone. In their place we have a marina and flats that only wealthy 'out of towners' can afford. Plans are afoot to get rid of the row of shops and build yet another block of flats, none of which will be affordable to locals.
The latest idea of an interpretation and education centre near Mamhead slipway would mean the loss of parking and access to the pier, which is used by the local fishermen as well as visitors.

Where would the visitors to the centre park if the building went ahead? Surely, the centre would be better incorporated with a heritage centre at the Elizabeth Hall. The authorities seem to approve, but what do the people who really matter, the locals, feel?
