DISTRICT council officers have backed down after considering convoluted proposals to rename a town centre car park.

Following a recommendation from car park inspectors, the authority investigated the possibility of renaming the London Inn car park.

Inspectors claimed residents are more likely to refer to the facility as the Magnolia Centre car park, though following consultation with the town council - who placed the name change on a recent meeting agenda for discussion - any potential change was scrapped.

A spokesman for EDDC said: "Our senior inspector wanted to seek the local view and raised the question with Exmouth Town Council.

"Both EDDC and Exmouth Town Council agreed that, for historical reasons, it would be best to leave the name of the car park as it is and we have withdrawn any suggestion that it be called anything else."

Just to add to the confusion, it emerged that the official documented name for the space behind Exmouth's shopping centre is the London Hotel car park.
