19. Why is the development including a cinema when there is already one in the town centre?
There is a cinema operator who would like to open a multi screen cinema at Queen’s Drive. They have undertaken their own market research and have identified a market for a new cinema complex for Exmouth and on this site in particular. Through the previous consultation, we received mainly positive responses regarding the cinema use from all ages. A cinema use is one that will also attract other businesses, restaurants in particular. Pizza Express, La Tasca or Nando’s for instance are popular restaurants that will associate with a cinema if it is to locate into new leisure schemes.
