People are being encouraged to take a look at the final competition entries for the former Tesco site in Bedlington.

A public exhibition will showcase concept plans that will kick-start the redevelopment of the site.

The shortlisted designs will be on display onTuesday, March 15, and Thursday, March 17, from noon-7pm, and on Saturday, March 19, from 10am-2pm in the former Tesco store on Market Place.

Arch has led a design competition to help develop ideas for what will be a commercially-led scheme underpinned by private sector investment.

Northumberland County Council’s Bedlington Town Champion Dean Jackson said: “There was a fantastic turnout at previous events which clearly showed the level of interest and passion that people have for the town. This next stage is set to provide fantastic opportunities and I hope people take this opportunity to come along to choose and comment on their preferred design for the site.”
