Grenadier and local building contractors, Devon Contractors Ltd, have confirmed they have temporarily paused work at the Sideshore watersports centre development in Exmouth.

Devon Contractors commented:

We have been following Public Health England guidance to ensure we protect our people, our subcontractors, and our suppliers health and safety. We will continue to monitor the impact and provide an update in due course.”

Aiden Johnson-Hugill, Director, Grenadier, added:

The creation of Sideshore may have been temporarily put on hold, but we are committed to creating something rather extraordinary. We are confident that once open, Sideshore, Exmouth’s new community focused Watersports Centre will offer visitors and residents of Exmouth unrivalled access to 2-miles of waterfront, alongside space to eat, meet and enjoy the beach.

In the meantime we are adhering to Government advice to protect the health and safety of our workforce. We look forward to unveiling Sideshore to the public as soon as possible, and we are confident it will not only operate as a sustainable business, but create a lasting legacy for the local community.”
