Approval for Mount Batten flats at defunct sea view restaurant
A DEFUNCT sea view restaurant at Mount Batten is set to be replaced with block of flats after controversial plans were approved last night.
Businessman Andrew Preston wants to redevelop the Seawings Restaurant into a four-storey building containing commercial space and seven luxury apartments.

He said it also would be a blot on the landscape.
