PLANS to transform Ottery's Marist Convent grounds into a �2.5million housing development should be scrapped say traffic bosses.

In a further twist in the tale of the controversial bid, Developer Sea Valley Property Ltd this week revealed altered plans for its "mixed residential and commercial" vision of four townhouses, eight apartments and a street-facing shop and office for the town-centre site. New plans attempt to address Franklea Close resident's concerns that townhouses, which could fetch up to �250,000 a piece, would be "overbearing" by reducing their height by one storey so they are only two-floor properties.
