NO SUPPORT: Revised plans to build a home on a site adjacent to 8 Vales Road have been opposed by Budleigh Salterton Town Council.

The scheme was originally approved in 2011, but the applicants now want to make alterations to the roof design, amend fenestration details, and extend and enclose the rear terrace.

However, town councillors had concerns that this work would greatly increase the size of the building, and voted to object.

Councillor Tom Wright said: “They are asking to make the whole building higher. It will be massively bigger and overpowering.”

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


HORTICULTURE: Budleigh Salterton Garden Club is holding its latest illustrated talk.

It will be given by Jenny Short, and takes place on April 26, at Budleigh Salterton Football Club.

Doors open at 2pm, for a 2.30pm start.


CAN’T DANCE: District planners have been criticised after rejecting a planning application in Budleigh for reasons of ‘rhythm’.

The scheme to build a home at 29 Victoria Place was turned down after objections from neighbours and Budleigh Salterton Town Council.

However, town and district councillor Tom Wright was unimpressed with East Devon District Council’s official decision notice, which stated that the plan would: “Harm the regular rhythm of development on the west side of Victoria Place.”

At this week’s town planning meeting, Cllr Wright said: “We are urged by officers to stick with planning considerations, and [now we’re told] this thing can’t dance the tango.”
