Honiton Town Council and Honiton Community Complex resolve dispute
 Honiton Town Council (HTC) and Honiton Community Complex (HCC), the charity which runs the Beehive for the community, have reached agreement over a system which will replace how service charges are calculated.
 The service charges contribute towards the operating of the building and ongoing maintenance, but the previous system had resulted in disagreement in the two parties interpretation of service charges in the lease agreement. Now that a variation has been made to the lease, HTC will pay a fixed quarterly amount to HCC.
Serena Sexton, Chair of HCC, said, "I am glad that this period of tension between the two parties is at an end."
Councillor Zarcynski agreed that this is "a significant step forward and I am hopeful that we can work positively together in future for the benefit of the Town".
Alongside the agreed changes to the lease, the council have also paid a one-off grant of £15,000 to support the charity following the impacts of Covid-19 and the required government closure of venues.
The Beehive will reopen for some activities this month in line with the government's staged approach to easing lockdown restrictions.
