Comps insider: Fresh ideas sought for Exmouth beachfront plot

  • Comment

If you’re stuck in a sweltering office and need a professional reason for beachfront leisure to be at the forefront of your mind Exmouth could be the answer

East Devon Council is soon to be seeking ‘fresh ideas’ for the coastal town’s Queen’s Drive with £18 million plans by development partner Moirai Capital Investments expected to be cannonballed into the deep blue.

The sun baked site – just metres away from a sandy beach and the cooling waters of the English Channel – had been earmarked for new apartments, retail and a multi-screen cinema.

But after lengthy legal negotiations with site tenants the local authority has decided new concepts are in order and has announced it is considering to re-market the plot.

Now it’s your opportunity to dust off your contacts in the area – Moirai has already declared its intention to rebid – and let your imagination go wild.

Although before you commission a working model water slide or any mankini strewn renders it’s worth considering the brief. The council – seeking the predictable twin pillars of a ‘money making and vibrant’ solution – has in mind wet weather facilities catering for the many non-heatwave days of the year.

Furthermore the site already has outline planning permission for a café, retail units, play facilities and a hotel or holiday accommodation which the council prefers over any residential.

Meanwhile for those of us who prefer inner city pursuits when the holidaying hoards escape for the country the London Borough of Hounslow could be up your street.

The council’s new commercial arm – Lampton 360 – is seeking a development partner for a £90 million programme to deliver 800 new homes across 10 sites over the next six years.

Development teams with experience of mixed-tenure urban schemes are sought so now is the moment to reach for your latest solution to the capital’s housing crisis and pick up the phone.

Interested parties have until 1pm on 14 September to apply.
