Part of SOS, the Vision Group for Sidmouth, has long been advocating community engagement for shaping the future of the eastern end of Sidmouth seafront. The aim would not be redevelopment (it is Environment Agency- rated Flood Zone 3) ), but regeneration of this run-down area as a marine-focussed contribution to the life of the town.
The latest report from the Port Royal Steering Group (PRSG), opens as follows:
‘At a brief positive meeting on Monday 25 March between STC Chair , Stuart Hughes, STC Chair-elect, John Hollick, Town Cler, Chris Holland, and PRSG Secretary, Robert Crick, it was agreed that:
Sidmouth Town Council will take the lead in engaging EDDC to develop positive plans on Port Royal using the PRSG document as a starting point’
