CONDITIONAL SUPPORT: Plans to build a first-floor extension at a Withycombe home have been conditionally backed by the town council.

Councillors said they did not object to the planned alteration to 10 Vale Road, on condition that the extension was not used as a separate home.

The plans will now be considered by East Devon District Council.

GRIT: The coldest temperatures so far this winter saw Devon County Council (DCC) gritters out in force last Friday for the first full treatment of the season. Road surface temperatures were forecast to plunge to as low as -3 C in East Devon overnight. Gritters treated around 1,700 miles of DCC’s main salting network.

MORE PATROLS: Exmouth police are stepping up patrols around the Imperial Recreation Ground following last month’s attempted burglary at the Sea Scout huts.

Officers said ‘considerable damage’ was caused in mid-November when the huts, near The Gut, were targeted.

In a bid to curb further crime in the area, Exmouth police have teamed up with the Lower Exe Mooring Authority, who has CCTV in the area, to monitor the situation.

A Devon and Cornwall police spokesman said: “We will increase our patrol checks of the area.

We have been liaising also with the local councillor, Eileen Wragg, who is going to lobby East Devon District Council for funding towards extra security.”

SUPPORTED: Plans to build an attached home at 23 St Johns Road have been backed by the town council.

Councillors did not object to the proposed two-storey home. However, they raised concerns that the proposed garage would dig into a neighbouring bank and create a danger when exiting on to Brixington Lane.

The plans will now be considered by East Devon District Council.
