East Devon District Council bought these buildings from Devon County Council after many meetings and requesting this happens. They have now been sold on to Devon and Cornwall Housing Association. Selling to DCH was because it has a private arm to raise the funds needed to make this a viable project. On the front of the land looking towards the Estuary will be Town Houses similar to those in Kingslake Rise. At the rear will be 13 houses some for rent, shared ownership or low cost sale. The plans have been viewed by many people at the Consultation by DCH at Exmouth Rugby Club on Wednesday 29th June 2016.
The final plans will be sent to EDDC for a planning decision. When that is done and all negotiations the buildings will be demolished before building will begin.
