EXTENSION OPPOSED: A scheme to build dormer windows and an extension at a Halsdon home has been opposed by Exmouth Town Council.
Councillors felt the plan, for 7 Springfield Road, could cause a loss of light and a flood risk to neighbours.
East Devon District Council will now rule on the plan.
AVENUES ‘NO’: Planned changes to an Avenues home have been rejected after a planning appeal.
The plan to demolish a garage and build an annex at Kempstone Lodge in Portland Avenue was originally rejected by East Devon District Council last year, on the grounds that it would be out of keeping with the Avenues area, and this decision has now been upheld.
FLAT BACKED: Plans to convert part of a town centre shop into a flat have been supported by town planners.
The plan concerns 79 Exeter Road, where the retail unit has been vacant for many months.
After Exmouth Town Council backed the scheme, East Devon District Council will make the final decision.
WALK OR RIDE: Entry is free for children taking part in Sunday’s Walk or Ride event, organised by the Rotary Club of Exmouth and District.
