THE Herald has got hold of major plans to re-develop Ottery's factory site, which include a Tesco store.

East Devon District Council (EDDC) confirmed this week it has received six separate applications for the site, which include a supermarket, a refurbishment of listed mill buildings as 33 residential units with community use, and a 30 unit sheltered accommodation block.

A decision on whether the bid will become a reality is likely to be made by EDDC in January next year.

Detailed blue-prints were in the process of being revealed to the public as the Herald went to press yesterday. They will posted on the Herald's website as soon as they are released.

Protestors now face a race against time to build their case against the bid.
