OBJECTION: Plans to construct an outbuilding in the garden of an Exmouth home have been recommended for refusal by town planners.

The owners of Willow Bank in Maer Lane said the building would contain a games room, gym and store.

However, planners objected on the grounds of overdevelopment, and because they feared that the new building could be used as residential accommodation in the future.

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