Tesco wades in for green tourism

The Seaton regeneration site has been purchased by SUPERMARKET giant Tesco and is designed to spin the town into the centre of tourism down the Jurassic coast. The gaining of the site from developers Liatris on Monday was affirmed by the company and its intentions have been indicated to render employment opportunities and low-cost housing – to help stem the flow of young people out of the seaside resort.

It was also revealed by Tesco would be addressing the issue of flooding from the sea and will be working with East Devon District Council and other agencies to be endorsing the formation of the ‘mega-marsh’ wildlife site between the renewal site and Colyford. Tesco will be consulting EDDC, Seaton Town Council and residents of the town before tangible plans for the new development are concluded.

EAST Devon District Council has held it is being looked forward to work alongside Tesco to accomplish its dream for the renewal of Seaton. EDDC has drawn up a list of goals to accomplish that includes recuperating the town’s tourism facilities, additional low-cost housing, improving the retail offering, land purchase to deliver the wetlands nature reserve, noticing room within the renewal area for new community services such as a gym and youth centre and securing a smooth transition when the construction work begins.

Mr Halse supplied that EDDC executive board would receive a report before taking any endorsed decision to work in partnership with Tesco.
