Sideshore wins Project of the Year at Michelmores Property Awards

Sideshore is a not-for-project development; it was built for the community, and it has always been the aim for Sideshore to remain a legacy for the local community. Built to the highest standards in sustainability, operating as a profitable business and managed locally as a Community Interest Company (CIC) – whose sole aim is to use profits for the benefit of the Exmouth area.

Sideshore is run by a purpose-built CIC made up of representatives from the local area. With a full asset lock neither Grenadier nor the Council can ever profit from Sideshore.

Sideshore is the place for the local community and visitors to Exmouth to take-up a new water sport, enjoy delicious food and drink choices or to simply sit and watch the amazing activities and sports on offer.
