STUART Line Cruises have been given permission to leave their portable booking office at the Mamhead Gardens until 2010.The owner, Ian Stuart, had applied for permission to move the booking office, based for years in the portable building on Mamhead slipway - but was forced to move while waiting for the decision.Mr Stuart said he had to move the portable building because the owners of the land, FWS Carter and Sons, started construction work before a temporary home had been found.If the ruling had gone against him, he could have been liable for enforcement action - but district planners said the offices could stay where they were for two years.However, Mr Stuart has to ensure that the original site was first 'reinstated to its original condition'.
