Strand Pavilion Building Planning Application

The application for the "Construction of new pavilion building comprising cafe, performance space, bus shelter and ancillary storage" by DCC has now been received and validated on the EDDC website. Its reference number is 11/0180/FUL. A direct link to it is: - http://tinyurl.com/4m3pzdr. The planning application has been made by DCC via its agent, Paul Humphries Architects Ltd.

 The associated documents were published on 31 January 2011 and include a hand drawn artist's impression of the building, a Design and Access Statement, elevations and floor plans. There is also a record of written comments resulting from the limited public 'consultation' on 6 January. Unfortunately these are all hand-written and hard to decipher.

All the documents are in high resolution portable document format (PDF) with rather weak colour depth - I resorted to copying and pasting drawings into a graphics application to increase the colour saturation before trying to make sense of the proposals.

Members of the public can make comments on the proposals via the EDDC website although many of those who were involved in the June 2010 consultations on the Stand Gardens development may wonder whether it is worthwhile. (I think it is!)  Those who provided recent hand-written comments might like to re-submit them in typewritten form or find a friend to do it for them.

The only 2 comments that I have so far are: -

 1) The bus shelter should not be in the footprint of the pavilion but on the pavement as on the opposite side of the road;

2) The performance area is a waste of space that could be used for an enclosed area, for tourist information, for example. When worthwhile a stage can be erected for special events as was done for the very successful Christmas Cracker event in December.

    This is the direct link to the 800 Mb PDF document consisting of 3 pages: -

    Thanks. I went there earlier and have looked again. Can see all the written documents but can't find the drawing.

    The direct link to the Proposed Elevation Plan does not work! To get at the document, go to the planning application page - http://tinyurl.com/4m3pzdr - then follow links to documents - then choose page 5 of the list of documents. You will find the Proposed Elevation Plan in the list on that page!!

    I have looked at the documents on the planning application and can find nothing to indicate solar panels. The Proposed Elevation Plan (a large 3 page drawing in PDF) provides a list of materials - http://tinyurl.com/69y4qoy . When on a visit to Exmouth during the first two weeks of September 2011 I was told to expect a revised design in a new planning application to be submitted this month - see also http://tinyurl.com/3gmja2j .
