A webpage giving help and information to potential bidders of the Sidmouth Drill Hall site has been set up.

The page has been launched by resident Mary Warden-Till – a retired 3D designer, who has taken the reins of a project to ‘rescue’ the site.

The Herald previously reported that East Devon District Council and Sidmouth Town Council, which own the site, would be putting it on the market for redevelopment.

The two authorities said they would be inviting investors interested in redeveloping the area to come forward for six months - to allow both commercial and non-commercial bids to come forward. It is expected that the site will be marketed from the spring.

Mary said: “I am willing to work with anyone, non-profit or profit, voluntary or commercial, to achieve the best result for the town. I am open to talking to and helping anyone.”
