The Sidmouth and East Beach BMP Advisory group provides an important link between the community, businesses, regulatory bodies and our consultants. The  group meet at key points during the project, where the technical analysis can be explained, queries can be raised and actions agreed to take forward the BMP to the next stage.

The Advisory Group now meets in public (from their 25 February 2021 meeting) and you can get the agendas and minutes from that point onward from the Sidmouth and East Beach Advisory Group page.

Previous notes of the meetings held in private, when the group was named the Steering Group, are listed below, for the period 2016 to 2020.  Some information has been redacted to protect the identity of third parties and some information has been redacted due to it being commercially sensitive and is therefore exempt under section 43(2) of the FOI Act 2000, Prejudice to commercial interests.
