Town council supports Rockfish plans but suggests alterations

Sidmouth Town Council has thrown its weight behind an application to convert the town’s historic Drill Hall into a seafood restaurant, however the council has suggested some alterations to the plans.

At the meeting members asked that the following items be taken into consideration by Rockfish and East Devon District Council:

– Councillors would like any extractor fans and ducting to be of dark colour.
– Councillors would like the site to become carbon neutral and have suggested the inclusion of solar panels on the roof and bicycle racks for customers.
