KILROY-SILK BID: The wife of former TV celebrity, Labour MP and UKIP leadership hopeful Robert Kilroy-Silk has seen her bid to transform Courtlands House into a home backed by town councillors.

Jan Kilroy-Silk applied for the function room and three flats at the Courtlands Lane house to be reverted back to a ‘single dwelling’.

Councillor Tim Dumper said: “I am very interested that there are no comments bearing in mind the applicant.

“Broadly speaking I would say yes to this application.”

District planners will now make the final decision.

CHECK YOUR LICENCE: Exmouth’s hotels and guest houses are being reminded to buy a TV licence ahead of their first busiest weekend of the year – Valentine’s Day.

TV Licensing says budget hotels, boutique B and Bs, luxury spa resorts or serviced apartments must all be covered by a valid TV licence if guests or staff are watching TV as it is broadcast. For smaller hotels and guesthouses, the cost of a TV licence is £145.50 a year, the same amount as a private house. Hotels with more than 15 rooms are covered by one licence for the first 15 units, but will need an additional licence for every five thereafter. For more information about TV licensing, call 0300 790 6124 or visit www.tvlicensing.co.uk/hotels
