Budleigh to get new town centre cash point

Shoppers in Budleigh Salterton will soon be able to draw cash out in the town centre again after a planning approval was granted.
Since Lloyd's closed its doors in January, shoppers have had to rely on the cash point inside Coop as the only place to draw cash out in the town.
Tesco has been given permission, by district council planning officers, under delegated powers, to install an automated teller machine (ATM) on the outside of the building.
The supermarket giant is in the process of converting the former S M Prior and Sons, in Fore Street, into one of its 'Express' stores.
Concerns were raised over the increase in traffic caused by shoppers stopping near the cash point.
The delegated officers' report said the installation of an ATM would not result in increased traffic activity.
Applications for the installation of signage in relation to the new shop and for a mechanical plant and associated equipment are yet to be decided.
