An application to build 10 new dwellings on currently being used as an Indian restaurant has been withdrawn.

Pub company Punch Taverns had entered a planning proposal for a mix of houses and flats in Prince of Wales Drive.

The site is currently being used by The Spice Lounge Indian restaurant which is still operating.

The pub company have now decided to withdraw the application.

If the proposal had been given the go-ahead there would have been seven two-bedroom dwellings, a couple two-bedroom flats and a one-bed apartment built on the site and The Spice Lounge would have to be demolished.

The proposal had previously drawn opposition from Exmouth Town Council which cited concerns over the use of water butts to intercept rain run-off.

Speaking at a town council meeting in June, councillor Brian Toye raised concerns, adding: “There’s going to be a problem with drainage.”
