Asset interested in: Sidmouth Youth Centre
Service interested in: Yes
Proposal Details: I am interested pulling together a number of interested parties around the continued use of the youth centre in Sidmouth. I am in initial discussion with another organisation to take over the building. A number of organisations including the town council already support (financially) the centre. There is scope for co-loation of other services such as Civil Parking Enforcement too. The area outside is ideal for a MUGA that can be used by the wider community including the Football Club. There is an opportunity for EDDC to support this. There is also scope to put in a radio-broadcast training facility for the youth (and others in the community) into the building. All these are just ideas but am committed to seeing how the youth provision in the town can continue.
