Recycled seats

Recycled plastic seats are long lasting and an excellent use of material which would otherwise end up as landfill. They can be secured at various locations throughout our district but are especially robust for areas subject to extreme weather conditions.

The plaques used on recycled plastic seats is made from engraved stainless steel which suits the more modern style.

Styles of seat vary depending on which location you choose with details on application.

We can offer a seat on a 15 year lease for a fee outlined below. This includes a provision of a plaque, securing the seat on site and a contribution towards maintenance. There is also the option of renewing the lease for a further 10 years.

Additional or replacement plaques will be charged per plaque, plaques will be offered back to the donor at the end of the lease period.

You can also adopt an existing seat (one without a plaque) for a fee for a period of 15 years.

Memorial plaques/seats requested for a cemetery will be subject to VAT.


All sites in seafront locations are currently allocated with very limited availability in Sidmouth, Beer and Budleigh Salterton in general. We're sorry but no further commissions in these areas can be taken until spaces become available.

A very limited number of seats are available in The Byes in Sidmouth. These are administered by the Friends of the Byes volunteer group.

Contact for further information.

There are more options for seats in Ottery St Mary, Honiton, and Seaton.

For seats in other villages and communities, please contact the appropriate parish council.
