BIDEFORD Pannier Market could become more self sufficient if plans to place photovoltaic (solar) cells on its roof are successful.

Bideford Town Councillors agreed on Thursday to apply to the Town and Parish Council Fund for a grant for the project.

Cllr Peter Christie, who put forward the submission, said he had spoken to officers at Torridge District Council who were enthusiastic about the idea.

“This would benefit all of the market traders, and help contribute towards fuel poverty in the town,” he said.

All of the councillors voted in favour of making the application before the February deadline.
