Concerned residents invited to Pip and Jim’s Hall on Friday, January 22 at 7.30pm
A public meeting to discuss the future of Cheyne Beach car park in Ilfracombe will be held on Friday, January 22.
It will take place at Pips and Jim’s Hall in St James Place at 7.30pm.
North Devon Council has resolved to give up the lease on the permit only seafront car park, which has 61 spaces and has seen vehicles battered by waves.
The council felt the risk to itself and the extra work involved in trying to contact people during bad weather was no longer worth the risk.

The land is owned by the Environment Agency, which has yet to give an updated statement on its position.
At Ilfracombe Town Council on Monday, Councillor Mike Edmunds gave an update on the situation and it was discussed whether the council might take on the car park.

Mayor George Squires said they would wait for the outcome of next week’s meeting. He told the Gazette: “It really is just an option and until we know what is happening. If it is feasible we will come up with a business plan, but at the end of the day someone has to pay for it.”
