Archant

Controversial plans to sell Knowle to a developer and relocate the district council from Sidmouth have been given the final go-ahead.

At a meeting tonight, representatives from across East Devon voted in favour of a move to Exmouth and Honiton.

The decision brings to a close four years of work by East Devon District Council to relocate to modern, energy efficient offices, which has seen legal challenges and a protest against the project by thousands of residents from across the region.

However, the project is still dependant on developer Pegasus Life securing planning permission to build a retirement community at Knowle.
