Plans for a brand new Youth Hostel building in Abbotsham could be approved by Torridge District Council this week.

Plans for a new Youth Hostel near Bideford will be debated by councillor’s on Thursday.

The Ultimate Adventure Centre submitted the proposals for three new ‘barn’ type accommodation buildings in December.

The application was called into Torridge District Council’s plans committee over flooding and drainage fears.

The proposals will be discussed at the committee meeting in Bideford Town Hall at 9.30am.
