Regeneration project to bring Exmouth out of the shadows


Council’s masterplan for the town is finally coming to fruition.

But the tide is beginning to turn. Moves to initiate a renaissance for the town have been a long time coming. East Devon District Council first unveiled a masterplan in 2011 but it is only now that plans are finally coming to fruition.
