The saga of on/off development of the now derelict hotel site has been running from the early days of East Devon Watch.
Just type – Seaton Heights – into the search box to reveal the twists and turns.
The last planning application posted yesterday was this:
Erection of No. 9 x 2-bed and No. 14 x 3-bed and 19 x 4 bed two storey detached holiday homes with associated parking and amenity space Seaton Heights Harepath Hill Seaton EX12 2TFRef. No: 21/1782/MFUL | Validated: Fri 10 Sep 2021 | Status: Awaiting decision.
The application is made by Lyme Bay Leisure Ltd (new web site coming soon – lovely image of the Seaton wetlands though).
In 2015 planning permission for a 12 bedroom hotel, 38 holiday lodges and a restaurant/leisure complex was granted permission (14/0667/MFUL).
Since then a new Premier Inn has been built in Seaton and this permission has lapsed.
This application is for 39 “units”, one of which will be used as an office/reception and cafe.
