HONITON Scout Hut, in Dowell Street, should benefit from upgraded windows and doors, town councillors have agreed. The 1st Honiton Scout Group is seeking planning permission from East Devon District Council to replace timber window frames and doors with modern, uPVC ones. The application was discussed by members of Honiton Town Council's planning com-mittee on Tuesday last week. Councillors recommended approval, so long as the new window frames and doors are sympathetic to the building. Councillor Michael Teare, committee chairman, said: "The application includes fire exit doors. "The applicants say the proposed replacements are in keeping with neighbouring properties. "The reason for the application is partly because the wooden window frames and doors are deteriorating and partly because new ones will provide better insulation. "The applicants point out that premises adjacent to the hut have uPVC window frames.
