SAINSBURY'S wants to open a town-centre supermarket in Ottery St Mary.

The supermarket giant said it met with Ottery town council on Thursday to reveal that its desire to submit a planning application for a new store in the town, on land adjacent to the town centre car park in Hind Street.

The proposal will include a 20,000 sq ft store and free car parking for shoppers who want to visit the store and town centre traders.

Jamie Baker, Sainsbury's regional development executive, said: "We hope to submit plans for a town centre store that will stock enough products to cater for a weekly shop, with free parking and in a location that will make it easier for shoppers to support Ottery's independent traders as well.
