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.

A plan to regenerate Exmouth’s seafront – designed, in part, by fashion-designer-turned-coastal-regeneration-specialist Wayne Hemingway and his company HemingwayDesign – is under way. The three-phase development will see part of the coast road, Queen’s Drive, rerouted and a new watersports centre, new ‘mixed leisure’ attractions and a new car park built.

So why is now the right time to bring the project forward? And how successful is it likely to be?
