PEOPLE get the chance to scrutinise plans for an extension to Tesco superstore - which would also include a new cafe - and the creation of 135 jobs.The plans for the store at Salterton Road will go on public display on April 11 and 12 at Exmouth Town Hall, where Tesco representatives will be on hand to talk to residents about the project. Tesco is holding the public exhibition on both days, from 10am to 4pm, to listen to residents' views.The company says the proposals will mean a bigger and better choice of food and produce, including more Fair Trade and local produce; better customer facilities and a new mezzanine cafe - the previous one was closed last year.The toilets will be refitted, extra disabled parking spaces added, a new recycling facility created at the back of the store and improvements made to Salterton Road, including new pedestrian and cycle networks.Melanie Chiswell, corporate affairs manager for Tesco, said: "We are currently asking people their views about our plans to improve and extend Tesco in Exmouth. The exhibition marks another important phase of our community consultation."We want as many people as possible to drop by to see the exhibition and give their feedback on our ideas which, we believe, will make shopping in Exmouth a far better experience."EDITOR'S NOTE: we would be interested to hear readers' views of the proposed plans - write or email: phil.griffin@archant.co.uk
