Plans unveiled for six-screen cinema and supermarket complex in Clacton
10:00am Friday 11th October 2013 in News
MULTI-MILLION pound plans for a new six screen cinema and supermarket in Clacton have been revealed.
The Clacton Gateway scheme will see the massive development built off of the existing Brook Retail Park roundabout on A133.
The proposal is being put forward by Clacton developer Britton Construction, based at the town’s Oakwood Business Park.
Owner Kevin Britton said the plans are response to interest from cinema operators.
He said; “Our scheme responds to the keen interest from cinema operators for a state of the art, modern complex to serve Clacton and the Tendring peninsular.
“The scheme’s strategic location will also help put Clacton firmly back on the tourist map.
“We have designed the superstore to meet the requirements of the only big player not yet in Clacton. The scheme will give residents full retail choice, locally.”
The town currently has Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s stores, so it is thought the unit has been designed for Asda.
An exhibition of the plans will take place at Clacton Town Hall, in Station Road, on October 17 and 18 from 10am to 4pm.
