Work has now started on the next stage of the Meadfoot beach chalet development.

Roof coverings and electrical work is currently being carried out on the 137 pre-cast concrete chalets, with timber shutter doors and UPVC doors being fitted to the ground level chalets this week. Internal fixtures, including electric points, kitchen worktops and cupboards will soon be added.

Once completed, which will be the end of April 2015, all of the chalets will be available for use throughout the year.

Torbay’s Mayor Gordon Oliver visited the site last week and said: “The beach chalets are shaping up nicely and are already proving to be immensely popular with the public. The chalets have been designed by Interserve to fit in with Meadfoot’s natural environment and will be a fine addition to Torbay’s naturally beautiful landscape.

“These chalets have been developed to satisfy demand from residents and tourists and if this continues we will look into providing a third tier. ”

Interserve’s Regional Construction Manager, Paul Cockram, said: “We are delighted to be involved in this challenging but very rewarding project to provide the local community and tourist industry with modern and robust beach chalets which replace a mixture of 50-year-old timber huts and concrete chalets.”

Existing beach hut users at Meadfoot have been offered these new huts and there is already a waiting list.
