Work to turn a former temporary car park site on Exmouth seafront into a public space for fitness classes has now begun. 

It comes following a recommendation by the Queen’s Drive Delivery Group to return the site to a public amenity space, complimenting other temporary uses until a new permanent use is agreed for the site. 

The groundworks has begun to remove previous foundations and hardcore to allow the site to be grassed and it is hoped that this work will be complete before the Easter holidays. 

Other works are also taking place will ensure that the central seating area is available ready for the planned opening on April 12. 

New Replacement picnic benches of sustainable materials will then be brought in and two small hardstanding areas will be created to facilitate access to this seating by those with mobility challenges. 

A new entrance to the events space is also being added to help with social distancing, with a one-way system once the site is fully open.
