The public and private sector have worked together with community organisations on several schemes designed to give Seaton a diverse and unique visitor and resident offering.
Much has been achieved in the town since 2011:
• A new Tesco store opened in 2011 creating 190 jobs
• 220 new Bovis Homes have been built
• The new £4m Seaton Jurassic Visor Centre opened in 2016
• A new gym, retail and housing development opened in the town centre in 2017
• A new 75 bed Premier Inn Hotel opened in March 2018
• Seaton Tramway have opened a new terminus
• Improvements and new resources are in place at Seaton Wetlands
• Improvements on the Stop Line Way cycle path that will eventually link Seaton to Axminster and onward to the Bristol Channel.
• Planning permission for Seaton esplanade improvements
The Council no longer has a formal role in facilitating the delivery of regeneration in Seaton but a Seaton Regeneration Forum meets on a quarterly basis, currently chaired by Cllr Marcus Hartnell.
