COMMUNITY groups and the public can help determine Rolle College's future at a special meeting at the town hall on Monday.
Exmouth Town Council have called an extraordinary meeting at 7pm in the council chambers after county chiefs refused to reverse a decision not to buy the Douglas Avenue site for use as a post 16 college.
Standing orders that govern council procedure in meetings will be lifted, to enable the public to contribute and help decide a way forward.
Mayor Darryl Nicholas said: "The purpose of holding this meeting is to make sure we lose no time in assessing our position and making sure we work together to find a way forward.

"Clearly the decision by the Devon County cabinet is a blow to the town's aspirations - but now is not the time to throw the towel in.
"While the meeting will provide an update of what has happened in recent weeks, the crucial debate will centre on how we progress things from here.

"That is why it is imperative that we get the town council, community groups and school representatives around the table at the same time- we have no time to lose."
Town clerk John Wokersien added: "It would help if groups could agree representatives from amongst their number to attend who can speak for their groups.
"However we do not wish to prevent anyone from attending who wishes to be there. "We in no way wish to replicate the tangle of red tape that has been evident at Devon County Council.
