Public Consultation Report
Over the past week we have been busy sorting through the plethora of questionnaires which were completed over the course of the public consultation. From sending out 3500 leaflets, we had approximately 350 people attend the consultation and nearly 200 questionnaires were completed.
The outcome of these questionnaires has been overwhelmingly supportive with the most popular opinion being that the development cannot come soon enough, to help bring more tourism and employment to the area.
The main question posed was Seaton residents wanted to know whether the leisure and food and beverage facilities would be available to them, as well as to the residents of the hotel and holiday homes. The answer to this is that Seaton residents will be able to use all the facilities available at the Gatehouse. The other main concern was that residents would like the site to be sympathetic to the surroundings. It has always been an important consideration to us that the natural beauty is to be preserved and we hope that by using natural locally sourced materials to construct the buildings, as well as setting them into the landscape, the beauty of the surroundings will be preserved. We will take into consideration the comments about the facilities being larger also and will discuss this with the EDDC.
In the coming weeks we will upload some of the plans for the site onto the website and facebook.
