The proposals by Torridge District Council, to demolish the exisiting centre and build this new one, will come before its plans committee meeting.

The two-storey centre will replace the existing visitors centre, and will also include a cafe, a lift, and flexible space for the community to use.

The plans are recommended for approval by planning officers.
