EXMOUTH could soon see a country hotel on the outskirts after town planners gave their full backing to the application.

The plan to convert Courtlands House in Halsdon from a function room and three flats to a 20-bedroomed hotel and conference suite was backed by town councillors who have recommended approval.

Plans to remove the house's fire escapes and replace openings were also backed for recommendations.

The application did receive objections from neighbours who were concerned about an increase in traffic and potential hazards to cyclists.

The town manager also backed the plans and said Exmouth was short of hotels and the estate could evolve to fill the gap.

The town planner's recommendation is subject to no objection from the highways agency and a final decision will be made by district planners at the next development control meeting.
