Prior to backing the plans, the council’s planning committee, at a meeting held last Monday, October 4, heard comments made about the application from the public.

Leslie Binns, who lives next door to Littlemead, said she thought the application looked to consolidate the house and its various outbuildings into one comprehensive whole.

She added: “I think this will benefit the look of the property and will also improve the ambience of the neighbourhood.”

The plans will now go to East Devon District Council who will make a final decision on the application.

* PLANS for a conservatory to be fitted at 22 Sturges Road, Withycombe Raleigh, have been supported.

* AN APPLICATION to change the use of an Exmouth-based bed and breakfast guest house to a residence for adults with a learning disability has been backed.

The town council’s planning committee, at a meeting held last Monday, October 4, supported plans for a change of use for 53 St Andrews Road.

Normanlea Society Ltd, a charitable society which provides support and opportunities for adults with a learning disability in the Exmouth area, is purchasing the property.

Linda Williams, from the not-for-profit voluntary organisation, said: “We are purchasing the property of 53 St Andrew’s Road to provide supported accommodation for adults with a learning disability.

“These individuals will subsequently be entitled to packages of support tailored to their individual needs.”

Despite the council’s decision to support the application, Lib Dem councillor Steve Gazzard refused to give his approval.

Mr Gazzard said: “At the moment, this property is a bed and breakfast.

“My concern is that Exmouth is a tourist environment. We are losing more and more forms of accommodation as it is.

“I’m extremely worried about the prospect of losing another B & B in the town.”

Conservative councillor Madeleine Chapman supported the plans. She said: “I would like to back the plans. We have to think of Exmouth as an all-year round community.

“There is need for this kind of accommodation.”

* EXMOUTH Town Council has supported plans for the construction of a single-storey rear extension to accommodate a swimming pool at a property in Withycombe.
