Revisions to new build opposed
A revised application to build a new home and garage at 22a Windsor Square has been opposed by Exmouth Town Council.
The scheme was originally approved last year by East Devon District Council, despite town council objections at the time, and building work has already begun.
A new application has now been submitted that includes some changes to the initial scheme.
But neighbours say that what has already been built overlooks them, because the ground has not been properly excavated beneath it.
At a planning meeting, town councillors voted to oppose the new application, on the grounds that the building’s excessive height and mass creates a “visual impact” and does not concur with the original plan.
