Grenadier launches consultation website for water sports centre

Grenadier has launched a dedicated consultation website for the proposed water sports centre for Exmouth. The new website – www.watersportscentreexmouth.co.uk – includes information on the proposed scheme, current designs, details on the consultation process and also offers the chance for the community to comment on the proposals via an online feedback form.

Peter Quincey, Director of Grenadier, said: “Gathering feedback from the community is extremely important to Grenadier and with the launch of the website, we can immediately start to gather this. Comments collected via the website and at the public consultation events will help shape our plans prior to a formal planning application being submitted at the end of November”.

“Having an online comment form available for the community means that anyone unable to attend any of the consultation events will still have the opportunity to put forward their views,” adds Peter.

In addition to the website, Grenadier are hosting a series of public consultation events to listen to the views of the local community on the proposed water sports centre plans. The events will take place from 9am to 5pm on 21 and 25 October, with a third event taking place from 5pm to 9pm on 1 November. Each of the events will be hosted at Ocean, Queen’s Drive, Exmouth.

Designs published for public consultation on new Water Sports Centre for Exmouth

Grenadier has published its designs for a new water sports facility for Exmouth, and is encouraging members of the community to participate in a public consultation on the plans.

The proposed not-for-profit scheme, which would provide training and changing facilities alongside an outdoor events space and eateries, is intended to enhance Exmouth’s waterfront, water sports heritage and leisure amenities. Offering immediate beach access,  the venue is expected to provide services throughout the year.

We can now confirm we will be hosting a series of events to listen to the views of the local community on the proposed plans, taking place at Ocean, Queen’s Drive, Exmouth.

The community event dates are:

  • 9am to 5pm on Saturday 21st October
  • 9am to 5pm on Wednesday 25th October
  • 5pm to 9pm on Wednesday 1st November

Peter Quincey, Director of Grenadier, says: “We’re excited to be sharing our designs with the local community, and hope as many people as possible offer comments and participate in our consultation. Our goal is to build a centre that serves the town, enhances its waterfront and builds on Exmouth’s water sports heritage. The centre will play host to sports like paddle boarding, kayaking and kite surfing.”

“We’re also committed to making sure the centre delivers long-term financial benefits to the local economy, and is energy efficient to support the local environment. Our hope is this will be a real benefit to Exmouth, and it’s important to us that the local community is actively involved in this development.”
