North Devon Council has confirmed it has received a planning application for a sculpture by local artist Damien Hirst, to be erected in Ilfracombe.
The 20 metre statue would be located in the pier area of the harbour.
Local people have until July 26th to comment on the application.
This application will be considered as part of our usual planning process.
There will be opportunities for members of the public to comment on the application during the public consultation period.
They can do this either online, by email or by post, before 26 July 2012
