A planning application to demolish a building in Exmouth to make way for a three-storey block of apartments has been withdrawn.
A planning application to build 10 homes in Exmouth has been withdrawn.
The proposal was to demolish The Old Orchard, in Foxhole Hill, Littleham, and create 10 new apartments.
Under the proposals, an existing dwelling would have been replaced with a single three-storey block of flats with underground parking.
Exmouth Town Council objected to the application on the grounds that it would be overdevelopment of the site.
An East Devon District Council (EDDC) conservation report also recommended refusal due to the harm the development would do to the area.
EDDC ward member for Littleham, Councillor Mark Williamson, said in his comments on the scheme: “A block of flats in this location would be gross overdevelopment, detrimental to the character of this special part of Exmouth and damaging to this coastal setting.”
The application was withdrawn.
