THE regeneration plan for Ilfracombe sea front will take a step forward next week when the Executive of North Devon Council will be recommended to plough a provisional �1.5 million into phase one of the project.
At the same time, the meeting on Tuesday will be asked to delete the Ilfracombe Harbour project from its programme to release funds to enable the sea front plan to go ahead.
The go-ahead for the �4 million scheme will depend on funds being allocated by a number of other agencies.
It would provide a new cultural centre linking Ilfracombe Museum and the Landmark Theatre.

The project would include an eyecatching public art feature, interactive exhibits and a "hidden courtyard" as part of the enhanced museum.
Much depends on a �1 million contribution from the CABE Sea Change organisation, expected by the end of this month.
The Executive will be asked to take a risk and appoint Chapman Workhouse to proceed with the design at a cost of �120,500.
