POWER CUT: Strong winds and rain led parts of Budleigh Salterton to be without power last Thursday evening.
Power cuts affected areas including Upper Stoneborough Lane, Granary Lane and parts of East and West Terrace.
Western Power distribution worked to get the power restored by 11pm. A spokesman said: “The power cut was weather related, and now the power is back on. Normal operations have now resumed.”
HOME IMPROVEMENTS REFUSED: A retrospective planning application to retain an extension of an external stair landing providing raised decking at Flat 2, 18 Station Road, Budleigh Salterton has been rejected by district planners.
Officers said that the design, scale and position of the decking would result in an ‘unacceptable’ loss of privacy for neighbours.
CHARITY CASH: The ‘one world’ lunch and fundraiser at Budleigh Salterton’s Methodist Church Hall raised £412 for Christian Aid. At the event the Reverend Anne Charlton spoke of her pilgrimage to India.
