The food hall at Kingsley Village in Fraddon is being redeveloped into retail space as part of a multi-million pound expansion at the site.

Plans have also been approved for a 15,000 sq ft supermarket with 260 car parking spaces.

Managers say talks are ongoing but no supermarket chain has formally committed to the retail park as yet.

We are inviting expressions of interest from supermarket chains. Sainsbury's is one of the stores that has already expressed an interest.
