Plans to replace a town centre nightclub with 18 flats have been supported by members of Exmouth Town Council’s planning committee.

The plan, which concerns The Q Club in Elm Grove, also includes car parking and cycle storage.

A previous plan for 10 flats on the site was approved last year, but councillors at this week’s town planning meeting were told the new scheme was for smaller flats, allowing the developer to increase the number of flats while making them more affordable.

Planning committee chairman Councillor Lynne Elson said: “This will hopefully provide housing for younger people.”

Councillor Maddy Chapman said: “With the increase in parking and bike parking, and the bin storage, they have thought it out really, really well.”

East Devon District Council will make the final decision on planning permission.
