Town council gives the thumbs-up for gallery clock plan

Plans to erect a clock designed by Damien Hirst on Ilfracombe quay have been recommended for approval by town councillors.

The Other Criteria gallery at 9 The Quay is seeking to install the multi-coloured timepiece above its shop front.

The clock has been on display on the wall at Other Criteria’s London gallery.

Town council planning committee chairman Janice Donovan said it would add interest to the area.
