A leading supermarket has confirmed it's pressing ahead with plans for a new store in Sleaford, which council bosses say could lead to a 100 million pounds worth of redevelopment and up to a thousand new jobs.
North Kesteven District Council says the redevelopment, which includes a disused heritage site, will bring a much needed economic boost to the area. But some residents are rejecting the plans for a new store. They say they want the money to be put into local shops instead. Kate Hemingway reports.
