A SUFFOLK town will get a chance to air its views on plans for a proposed Tesco.
A public meeting will be held on Monday, September 29 to allow anyone with a view on Tesco's hopes to build a store in Halesworth to speak.
Earlier in the year, the chain confirmed it wanted to build a supermarket off Saxons Way and Angel Link.
At a town council meeting on Monday, councillors said they had been told the company intended to hold a public exhibition on October 4 and 5 to reveal its plans.
Town councillor Ezra Leverett said: “It should be for the public to give us their views on how they feel about a very large superstore coming to the town - and in Halesworth terms it is a very large store. We should give them the chance to comment on the Tesco proposal before that meeting so they can go along with questions to ask.”
The council has not yet organised a venue for the meeting, which will begin at 7pm.
