A two-storey extension will be added to the listed building on the Esplanade and the main house will be refurbished to create three flats. The garage will be demolished and a two-bedroom detached house added in its place. The plan is a modified version of proposals already approved by a government inspector after North Devon Council had initially refused it. Ward member Councillor Malcolm Wilkinson said it was high time a line was drawn under the saga. Cllr Glyn Lane said the new scheme will be more traditional in appearance.
