Aerial view of Grenadier’s proposed Water Sports scheme for Exmouth on Queens Drive
The proposed water sports centre occupies the middle of the site facilitating easy access to the beach and maximising views across the bay.
The water sports centre is a timber clad single-storey pitched roof which is fronted with decking. The west area features a flexible events space with access to drinking water and electric points. To create additional local business opportunities there are a cluster of compact retail units which will be made available for a variety of different uses.
Improved access to the beach is provided through two new sets of steps and an access ramp, each designed to have a low environmental impact.
The centre has been designed to have a low visual and environmental impact taking into account concerns regarding over development and limiting of coastal views. A significant amount of green space has been created on what is now a surface car park.
