East Devon District Council (EDDC) confirmed this week it has received six separate applications for the site, which include a supermarket, a refurbishment of listed mill buildings as 33 residential units with community use, and a 30 unit sheltered accommodation block.
A decision on whether the bid will become a reality is likely to be made by EDDC in January next year.
