‘Future’ glimpse of Sidmouth
Specially commissioned computer-generated images will feature in a special exhibition
RESIDENTS will get a glimpse of what Sidmouth’s coastline could look like in the next 20 to 100 years next month.
Specially commissioned computer-generated images will feature in a special exhibition aimed at highlighting the causes of coastal change- and how erosion might affect the town in the future.
The event, at Kennaway House on Thursday, July 21, from 10am to 8pm, will give visitors the chance to see what Sidmouth’s Jurassic Coast may look like in 20,50 and 100 years time.
They can also find out how other communities have adapted to changes.

Councillor Roger Croad, Devon County Council’s cabinet member for the Environment, said: “Communities along the Jurassic Coast have lived with the impact of erosion, storms and rising sea levels for generations.
“These risks are only going to increase in the future, so it is important we continue to work together with residents and visitors to develop options to adapt to the threat of coastal change.
