Pegasus Life new Knowle exhibition TODAY | East Devon Watch

See how Knowle plans have ‘evolved’ at exhibition

The proposed apartment blocks would sit on the footprint of the existing EDDC offices and former hotel building.
The second of a pair of exhibitions hosted by the developer lined up to buy the East Devon District Council’s (EDDC) offices at Knowle takes place today (Friday).
At the first event in November, PegasusLife revealed its provisional plans for the 4.7-acre site, which included 126 retirement homes, a restaurant and gym facilities.
Residents were invited to give feedback at the first exhibition, and the firm says this week’s showing at The Woodlands Hotel, in Station Road, will show how the proposals have ‘evolved’ .
Pegasus has signed up to buy EDDC’s office site from the authority for between £7million and £8million. The proceeds will be used by the council to fund its relocation from Sidmouth to new offices in Honiton and renovate facilities at Exmouth Town Hall.
However, the project hinges on PegasusLife securing permission to redevelop the site.
The firm has previously said it intends to submit a formal planning application for the site in March.
Today’s exhibition will be open from noon until 7.30pm.

The plans were first put on line in November:
Futures Forum: Knowle relocation project >>> Pegasus plans in full >>> "very imposing and brutal"
Futures Forum: Knowle relocation project >>> Pegasus plans in full >>> "They are planning over 120 dwellings on the site, whereas the emerging Local Plan proposes only 50."
Futures Forum: Knowle relocation project >>> Pegasus plans in full >>> when a retirement apartment is a 'residential institution' and not a 'home'
Futures Forum: New developments are not 'keeping in sympathy with current architectural buildings of Sidmouth' >>> 'the pull for tourists in Sidmouth is that it is an old-fashioned place'
