20. How many restaurants are being proposed and will there be demand for them?
Currently the whole development is planned to offer a total of eight different food and drink businesses including cafes, restaurants and bars to cater for day time and night time use all year round. While this site has remained unchanged for a long time, Exmouth’s population has increased steadily and its food and drink offer has been improving as well. EDDC also wants to bring new and more visitors to Exmouth especially to stay and spend money that will boost the local economy and create new jobs. The people of Exmouth will have less need to leave the town for a meal, family day or nights out and new visitors will mean increased demand for more choice of food and drink venues.
