Plans have been approved for the redundant public conveniences on Westward Ho! sea front.

PLANS to convert a run down toilet block on Westward Ho! sea front into a Moroccan eatery have been approved.

Torridge District Council has granted planning permission for the redundant public conveniences in Ennisfame Road.

The toilet block was put up for auction in September 2013 with a guide price of £10,000 but sold for £41,000.

The application by Mr J Bouzoubaa received two letters of objection and was recommended for approval by Northam Town Council.
