We ran a consultation from 23 June 2022 to 12 August 2022. This focused on the future for Exmouth, looking for views on how various key sites can be improved. The questions in the consultation were formed from the responses of Councillors who identified the themes and characteristics they felt were appropriate for Placemaking in Exmouth.

Members of the Placemaking in Exmouth Town and Seafront Group agreed to consult with stakeholders, the public and visitors to hear their views and to identify and any gaps that exist.

As part of this consultation we:

  • Publicised an online questionnaire that anyone could fill in.
  • Held two workshops at Exmouth's Ocean Queen's Drive for the general public.
  • Held two workshops for stakeholders and officials.
  • South West Research Company also conducted 400 on-street face-to-face interviews – 150 and 250 interviews respectively, on behalf of the council.

Once we have analysed all of your views, the information will be fed back to the Placemaking in Exmouth Town and Seafront Group. This will help us to develop a plan for Exmouth which will be developed via a terms of reference.

After this the Group will make a recommendation to Cabinet so that the position of the Council and the group become aligned and we will then prepare a and publish a plan for Placemaking in Exmouth Town and Seafront – which the public can comment on.
