Carter Plant Hire has now been active for several weeks, assisting in the erection of a steel frame, supplied by Danick Steel Ltd., at the site of a new pavilion for Budleigh Salterton Cricket Club. Our premises are just half a mile from the new site and, as life members of BSCC, both Nick and Ben Carter are happy to be involved in this exciting new project.
Designed by New Space Architecture in Exeter, this replacement cricket pavilion and clubhouse is situated in a new location at Janey’s field, Budleigh Salterton following its previous home at Ottermouth, which has been subject to seasonal flooding for years. The relocation of the cricket club is part of the Environmental Agency’s £15m Lower Otter Restoration Project, returning the area to a more natural state, increasing biodiversity and improving habitats.

The design of the purpose-built structure will not only meet the specific requirements of a modern and inclusive cricket facility but also provide a social venue for the wider community. The new clubhouse will be fully accessible to all users and split into sports and changing facilities on the ground floor and a large entertaining and social space upstairs complete with a stunning raised balcony, giving 180° panoramic views across the two new cricket pitches and out to sea.
