First artist impressions revealed today (Thursday) show sketches with near identical architecture to designs showcased at a public exhibition in Sidmouth in March.

However, the proposed building has been reduced in height by one storey and features nine less apartments.

Earliest designs featuring 48 apartments were scrapped in February as a new architect was employed.
