THE character of the former Lamb Inn, Honiton, must be retained, town councillors agreed last week. Most recently Honeybees Wholefood Restaurant, the High Street building is the subject of a planning application by bookmaker William Hill. The betting shop chain is seeking permission from East Devon District Council to alter the shop's distinctive doors. Members of Honiton Town Council's planning committee heard at a meeting last week that plans to make alterations to the shop front had been abandoned. "The door should be left exactly as it is," said Councillor Liz Tirard, pointing out the shop is in a Conservation Area. Former mayor Councillor Sally Casson said: "The door is part of the character of the former Lamb Inn." Councillor Vernon Whitlock, the Mayor of Honiton, said: "If they (William Hill) are modernising the premises to make it fit for purpose they are going to want new doors. I suggest they replace them with similar." The committee, chaired by Councillor Michael Teare, recommended new doors be of the same style as the existing ones.
