Plans for a £2million investment in a Sidmouth holiday park that was badly hit by the recession have been supported by civic leaders.
Weston Bay Resort’s new owner has pledged the site is now in safe hands, and a number of jobs will be created when it is renovated for next spring.
Civic leaders welcomed proposals that will bring the ageing plot up to date, saying it is overdue.
Councillor David Barratt said: “I stayed there before I moved to Sidmouth and it was unattractive then – I see no reason not to support these plans.”
Cllr Ian McKenzie-Edwards added that it was in an attractive location and could be used by both local residents and holidaymakers.

The redevelopment fits into the site’s current footprint and will update and refurbish the clubhouse, gym, swimming pool restaurant and bars, upgrade the landscaping, lighting and security, and restore the 15m swim pool, gym, restaurant and bars.
Formerly known as Stoneleigh Holiday Village, the site is covered by Branscombe Parish Council, but was considered by Sidmouth Town Council as a neighbouring ward.
