New microbakery, restaurant and job opportunities for Colyton if bed and breakfast expansion wins planning permission
Colyton could get a new micro-bakery and restaurant if a local bed and breakfast gets permission to expand, and extend its food and drink operations.
The owners of Glebe House in Southleigh say the scheme would also create new jobs.
They want to convert the existing family home and three-bedroom bed and breakfast into a six-bed guest house and restaurant, and open the bakery in an existing outbuilding.
The micro-bakery will be set up to serve the guest house, and provide freshly-baked bread to local residents and small businesses.
If approved by East Devon District Council, the project is expected to create four full-time jobs within two years of opening, and further part-time employment for waitresses, kitchen staff, gardeners and cleaners.
The owners plan to move out of Glebe House into a cottage they already own, which will also be used for some live-in staff accommodation.
