A concept idea for the Port Royal area in Sidmouth has been developed by consultants as part of a scoping study to assess the feasibility of redevelopment of the area. The study has been commissioned by Sidmouth Town and East Devon District Councils, who are the major landowners of the site, and is the first step in exploring options for the area.
The study will also identify the boundaries, ownership and the needs of existing occupants. Over the last few months the consultants and officers have visited the tenants on the site including the Lifeboat and Sailing Club. They have spent time with these organisations to learn more about their activities and understand the important work they carry out which included the logistics of manoeuvring boats and trailers.
You can look at the proposals in person on Monday 26 June and Tuesday 27 June from 3pm to 8pm at Kennaway House, 6 Coburg Road, Sidmouth, EX10 8NG.
These events, which are part of the study, are open to all and the public can drop in between these times and look at a small exhibition of the proposals and talk to council officers and the consultants who will be at each event. You will have the opportunity to complete a questionnaire at the events telling us your views, thoughts and ideas.
If you need a copy of the consultation on paper or in any other format please email email@example.com or call 01395 517569.
Your responses will be held within the SNAP Survey software system owned by East Devon District Council. East Devon District Council and Sidmouth Town Council will both see the raw questionnaire data, analyse the responses to this consultation and create a summary of what everyone has said. This consultation report will not include any personal names or contact details but may include verbatim attributable comments as you have written them in your response. The consultation report will be sent onto the consultants. It may also be made publicly available online and may include attributed comments made via the questionnaire.
The consultants will then look at producing a set of recommendations which will balance community expectations with what is achievable in the area. This may also include verbatim comments as you have written them in your response, and may also be made publicly available online. These recommendations are expected to be considered by Sidmouth Town Council and East Devon District Council later in the year.
By completing and submitting your responses to us you are giving permission for them to be used in this way.
