SIGNS NOT SUPPORTED: An application by the Famous Ship pub to retain a number of advertising signs has been refused by Exmouth Town Council.
Town ward councillor Steve Gazzard told planning committee members that there were currently 21 signs at the pub, in the high street, and that its application to retain ten signs would still make the building too cluttered, and a distraction for drivers.
Councillors agreed to hold discussions with the applicant to try and reach a compromise.
