New Watersports Centre Update

New Exmouth watersports centre ‘to be open by summer of 2020’

A final agreement between developers Grenadier and East Devon District Council will be signed off after the council’s cabinet agreed to the final legal contract for the lease of the seafront site.

Exmouth’s swanky new watersports centre WILL be built by June 2020.

A final agreement between developers Grenadier and East Devon District Council will be signed off after the council’s cabinet agreed to the final legal contract for the lease of the seafront site.

The agreement means Grenadier are legally required to take the lease for the Queen’s Drive within five days of the council completing the realignment of the seafront road, currently targeted for June 19.

And the developers will be set a target to build the watersports centre within 12 months so it is operational in time for summer 2020.

Mr Cohen said: “The agreement means that they have to accept the lease for the site within five days of us completing the new road, and then they have an obligation to complete it within 12 months.

“Grenadier Estates have confirmed their willingness to commence construction this summer with a view to the Watersports Centre being operational before summer 2020.

“This timeline will allow Grenadier, who have entered a pre-construction service agreement with their preferred contractor, to finalise contracts and to get on site and build out in time for the summer season of 2020. This is an especially important timeline for their tenants who, having invested in their new premises, will be business planning and expecting to be up and running in time to make the most of the high season.”

The long-awaited final agreement between the council and Grenadier to ensure the watersports centre is built was welcomed by councillors.

Cllr Pauline Stott said: “This is good news for Exmouth. The watersports centre is about to happen and will have a restaurant run by Michael Caines. It will be good for tourism, will bring people into Exmouth, and this watersports centre could be a national centre. This will make Exmouth one of the main places in Devon and the South West to visit.”

Cllr Jill Elson said: “This will be a boost for the town and tourism in general, so lets us get on with it.”

“This ensures that Grenadier Estates are legally committed to taking the lease once the Council’s road and car park works have been completed. The council and Grenadier have agreed outstanding matters including arrangements for public car parking on the site, delivery of the beach access ramp and delivery timescale.

“The council will complete the new road and car park in June 2019 enabling Grenadier to get on site therefore risk will then transfer to their role in developing the site and delivering the buildings and public realm for phase 2.”

Cllr Tim Dumper asked what happened in a scenario in which Grenadier did not deliver the watersports centre in a timely manner, and was told by Mr Cohen that they could forfeit the land and the lease, but that would be an extreme measure.

Peter Quincey, Director of Grenadier, said: “Grenadier is very excited to commence with this project and we are keen to get on site as soon as possible following completion of the council’s scheduled roadworks. We are delighted to have Edge Watersports and Michael Caines supporting the new watersports centre on Exmouth seafront.”
