A new toilet block is opening today on Exmouth seafront in time for the expected increase in visitors over the Easter holiday weekend. Despite disruption caused by the storms during January and February the contractors, working on behalf of East Devon District Council, have completed the new facilities on schedule.
The new block will contain six unisex cubicles, one male urinal, one unisex accessible WC, and one unisex baby changing facility. Replacing the outdated and non-accessible facilities, the toilets are a higher quality, easier to clean and maintain, and meet new access and health and safety standards.
Councillor Andrew Moulding, deputy leader of East Devon District Council and chair of the Exmouth Regeneration Programme Board said “I am very pleased that we have managed to get these new facilities open for the holiday period which, given the conditions during the winter, is to be applauded. Along with the refurbishment of the old lifeboat station next door for Exmouth Rowing Club, this is a visual sign that the regeneration of the seafront is underway.”
Additional community toilet facilities will continue to be provided at the Pavilion and The Grove Public House .
The new toilets are next to the Queen’s Drive Leisure Area, the unique 9.3 acre seafront site currently being marketed as a development opportunity to provide all year round leisure facilities for all ages. These developments are key to the Exmouth vision to establish the resort as an attractive 21st century destination for residents, businesses and visitors.
