TOILETS: A mothballed public toilet in Otterton is set to be demolished – and replaced with a new home.

Exmouth’s Paul Humphries Architects has submitted a plan for the toilet block in a conservation area in Ottery Street to build a single detached three-bedroom home.

The design statement reads: “The appearance of the building, by virtue of scale, massing and utilisation of vernacular materials, is in harmony with the immediate area and locale. It is, therefore, in character and appearance with the area.”

Otterton Parish Council will debate the plan before district planners decide.
