Detailed plans have been unveiled for 90 riverside homes, which could bring a massive boost to Seaton’s economy.

The £20million Seaton Quay development, on the former Racal factory site, has already been given outline planning approval.

Now, Axe Riverside Company has submitted a full application, including ‘reserved matters’, to East Devon planners, showing the design of the complex.

Spokesman Edward Willis Fleming told the Herald: “We very much hope that reserved matters from the existing permission will go through soon, so this is the final piece in the jigsaw, which will allow the project to commence immediately.

“These are exciting days for Seaton and, hopefully, the continuation of a much wider and long-awaited regeneration.”

The Seaton Quay development will include two-bedroom homes and apartments.

It is being designed by architects Purl Design, of St Blazey, in Cornwall.

The company was responsible for Bradford’s Quay in Wadebridge, North Cornwall, a similar project which has been very well received.

Seaton Town Council has backed the scheme, stressing that the development of the brownfield site is vital for economic input into the town, while bringing in much-needed public facilities, as well as providing homes for 90 families who will spend money with local businesses.
