East Devon District Council (EDDC) has submitted a planning application for a kiosk to be put in place for up to three years.

It would be sited on a platform by the zig-zag path up to the top of the cliffs, previously occupied by the old Orcombe Café before it closed in 1999.

The council previously said it hoped to get a temporary café up and running for this summer, while considering plans for a permanent café at Orcombe Point.

The council’s application states: “The new kiosk will meet the need for a refreshment facility at this location for residents of the local area and tourists visiting Exmouth seafront and the Jurassic Coast. The operator/tenant will be required to provide a high-quality offering, promoting the use of local suppliers and ingredients wherever possible.

“The menu will be limited to hot and cold drinks, and light pre-prepared snacks.”

The application adds that due to restricted space at the site, the council will not provide any seating or tables with the kiosk.

EDDC has received more than 15 speculative enquiries from potential kiosk operators.

Exmouth Town Council will be consulted about the application, before EDDC planners decide on permission.
