EDDC flogging off the Ocean Centre Exmouth – well, it might cover a bit of the new HQ bill!

“According to agent Vickery Holman Property Consultants, Ocean Blue, in The Esplanade, is on the market for £2,700,000.

The facility, which opened its doors for the first time in 2012, has 12-lane 10-pin bowling, a gaming area and the Ocean Bar and Grill, with a seating capacity of 100 on the first floor and a large children’s soft play area and café for 22 children.

On the second floor, there is a function suite, bar and two outside terraces which has become a popular wedding venue with a capacity for 350 people.

The complete site is subject to a 125-year lease with East Devon District Council and was sublet to LED Leisure Ltd for 25 years in 2015.

The Journal understands this agreement will not be affected by the sale of the site.”

  1. I am sure that another possible interpretation could not possibly be to ensure that there is no public ownership of land and buildings. Such a plan would ensure that public authorities have to lease all these things from private (profit making) industries. An extension of PFI with all the problems of cost, quality and service delivery permanently locked into the system. Surely it can’t be the intention of this government to destroy public services in favour of private industry (except when private industry cannot see how to make a profit).


  2. This Council are a disgrace and should be hanging their heads in shame. Multi millions that they DONT HAVE on an admin building when everything around them is struggling. Something really needs to urgently change. They appear to be working for themselves and not for those of us who pay their salaries and should be having a far greater say in how our monies are spent. Sick of it !
