North Devon Council is inviting comments from businesses on changes to Ilfracombe harbour in connection with the planned watersports centre.
On 9 February 2015 the Council granted planning permission (planning application number 57487) for the erection of a multipurpose watersports centre with boat and equipment storage facilities, showers, changing rooms, teaching space and café at Larkstone Cove, Ilfracombe. In addition to the facilities within the building, the design includes boat storage facilities within a new boatyard and a new slipway access to the water. It also provides for the relocation of the retaining sea wall, moving it forward. The construction of the new wall and the provision of the slipway access are the subject of the draft HRO (article 3).
