which form part of the campaign by sidmouthdrillhall | Save Sidmouth Drill Hall Campaign to refurbish the old Drill Hall currently lying vacant on the seafront at Port Royal:
What exactly should be 'done' about the Drill Hall has been highly contentious.
First, the District Council planned to replace the building with a 'boat park':
EDDC budget £48k to demolish Sidmouth’s drill hall - News - Sidmouth Herald
Then the Conservation Officer "asked for evidence to demonstrate that alternative uses have been sought and suitably dismissed":
Drill Hall demolition ‘unacceptable’ - News - Sidmouth Herald
Meanwhile, a campaign was being lauched to 'save the Drill Hall':
Bid to save ‘iconic’ Sidmouth seafront building - News - Sidmouth Herald
And the District Council allowed a stay of execution:
Shock change of plan for Drill Hall - News - Sidmouth Herald
This coming Monday 15th April, the campaign group will be holding an open meeting upstairs at the Anchor Inn in Sidmouth from 7pm to discuss the future of the Drill Hall.
