Lyme Bay Leisure is pleased to announce that they have finally achieved their planning consent for the much awaited development of the derelict Seaton Heights Hotel.

The new development is to be called The Seaton Gatehouse, Hotel, Spa & Leisure Resort.   After overcoming many hurdles our revised planning application will provide enhanced footpath connections to the town;  make a contribution to the Wetlands Project;  and crucially,  introduce an ecology and landscaping plan to guarantee in perpetuity the flight paths and habitats of rare bats and other wildlife, found on the site, in this area of natural outstanding beauty.

The site includes a boutique hotel; a contemporary restaurant with panoramic sea views; coffee shop; gymnasium; swimming pool and luxury spa.

Lyme Bay Leisure will announce prior to Christmas their revised designs and their intended commencement dates.

This is very good news for local people as the new development will create construction jobs for local builders and tradesmen, as well as approximately 50 full and part-time jobs from chamber maids to fitness instructors, marketing and sales personnel, to catering and restaurant staff.

David Sullivan, Chairman of Lyme Bay Leisure, paid tribute to Neil Parish M.P. who enthusiastically supported the project through the torturous but necessary planning process. David also thanked Seaton Parish Council and the residents of Seaton for their support in huge numbers and East Devon District Council for their support, pragmatism  and trust with this hugely important site.

James Hetherington, Managing Director, expressed his relief at obtaining the planning consent and was eager to get on with building the project and kick starting Seaton’s latest and long awaited regeneration project.

James said, ‘’it has been hard work and costly getting to this stage, but now the real work begins. I am eager to get on with it and bring this site to life again and start welcoming visitors and local people to experience the new exciting facilities that the hotel and resort will bring.
