I was at exmouth 2 weeks ago and the slip at the marina end of the front was shut, and looked like it had been for some time !. HTH

I hear the Council have an agenda Ed....they can't close it...unless it's Dangerous...no maintenance for a couple more years should sort that!

Launching exmouth

Planning has been applied for, to be reviewed in mid November with work starting in February next year all being well.

Here's an article from the local rag: http://www.exeterexpressandecho.co.u...ail/story.html

I haven't launched from Exmouth side of the Exe for ages, so not sure about the state of the other slips. All slips my side of Exe go under the railway line - not giving enough clearance for boats with A-frames.

That is Hopeful at least...be interesting how it Pans out.....
The sight next to the slip has been derelict for many years and would certainly benefit from a bit of investment!..With the Multi Million redevelopment of the Docks and surrounding area,the council can't be too short of a few quid to maintain the Town's main slipway!
Time will tell.

Imperial Rec slip seems to get reasonable use (possibly more with the Mamhead one being closed).

Don't think there will be any parking included in the rebuild scheme although the new angle will make it easier to reverse onto.

Re Maximus' comments, I suspect East Devon council have been taken for something of a ride by the developers of the marina area. So apart from a bit of extra Council Tax income, they haven't greatly benefitted (and neither has the town). The site next to the slipway is now 'The Waterfront' restaurant, opened earlier this year.

To further enhance the facilities in the area, the marina developers are building a 14-flat 5-storey building over most of the pierhead fisheries car park. Just don't get me started on East Devon's planning department and committee!
