The repainting of an iconic feature of Sidmouth’s seafront is among the projects set to be budgeted by East Devon District Council (EDDC) in 2017/18.
Jacob’s Ladder will also benefit from structural maintenance if the authority green-lights the £16,750 spending allocation.
Wednesday’s (January 11) cabinet agenda lists special items in the draft 2017/18 budget. A report says that, without an inspection every four to six years, access to Jacob’s Laddder could be closed.
There is also an £11,000 allocation to implement beach monitoring recommendations from the authority’s ongoing Sidmouth Beach Management Plan. These include weather monitoring, additional surveys and marking of cross-sections on the sea wall.
Members will consider the budget allocations on Wednesday.
