EXMOUTH'S business leaders next week are invited to a business breakfast to discuss the potential affect on the town's economy of a new 'Super Council'.The Boundary Commission has proposed an overhaul of how Devon is governed - either a 'super council' replacing the county and district council, or an authority with Exeter and Exmouth at its heart.And, on Thursday, August 14, town council clerk John Wolkersien will be visiting the Exmouth branch of the Business League to talk on the effects and implications of the proposed Unitary Status on local businesses.Nigel Wilkinson, of the Business League, said: "Issues such as regeneration, economic activity and strategies, the promotion of the town and tourism are areas of particular interest to the business community. "The Business League would welcome guests from across the Exmouth business community to join us for breakfast and for what promises to be a fascinating insight to how changes to local government could affect local businesses."The Exmouth Business League meets from 7.15am to 9am every Thursday at the Devoncourt Hotel - and is an opportunity for local businesses to network and develop in a professional, friendly and relaxed atmosphere.Businesses wishing to attend are asked to contact Nigel Wilkinson on: (0845) 568 8310 or Tim Dumper on: (01395) 276635. Cost of the breakfast is £6.50.
