Plans for a map of Budleigh businesses to be erected at the Public Hall for visitors have been supported by the town council.

The proposal has been put forward by Budleigh in Business (BinB), which wants to put up signs based on the map the group has distributed as part of its Buy Local campaign.

The group also wants to put the signs at Steamer Steps and at the town’s car parks, which are controlled by East Devon District Council, but attended this week’s town council meeting to persuade town councillors, who would have the final say on the Public Hall plan.

BinB said it would like to have a sign at the hall so it could be seen by people getting off buses there.

It would be funded entirely by BinB, and will be replaced every two years in order for the shops it shows to be updated.

The town council voted to back the plan, with councillor Alan Dent saying: “I support this idea on the grounds that part of our role is supporting the local economy. [With this sign] we are promoting Budleigh and I believe that is what we should and could be doing.”
