PROPOSALS to sell off the former Ilfracombe Pavilion site for development to help regenerate the seafront will be discussed today (Tuesday) by North Devon Council's executive committee.

It is proposed any development should create an all year around, all weather attraction which improves leisure and tourism opportunities in the town.

It should also be commercially sustainable and provide employment opportunities, as well as "create a recognised contribution to the seafront."

It should also be "aesthetically pleasing" with a look that reflects its surroundings and public access should be retained where possible.
