Council Chambers compared

2 Comments

Wandering off the point when considering the major planning application by PegasusLife (DMC, 6 Dec 2016) , Exmouth Cllr Mark Williamson made reference to a joke that employees could get lost in the present Council offices at Knowle.

Below is a projection of the plans for EDDC’s new Council offices in the proposed refurbishment of Exmouth Town Hall. It highlights the long and winding route to the council chamber, through 3 or so sets of fire doors (assuming the building meets the fire regulations).

The seating arrangements are very different from those in the Knowle Council Chamber, where councillors largely have their backs to the public gallery (See photo below, from https://saveoursidmouth.com/2016/12/31/turning-our-backs-on-2016-raising-a-glass-to-the-new-year/ ) .

But will the number of seats provided for the public in the Exmouth Council Chamber be adequate?
