RESIDENTS will today (Thursday) get the chance to quiz experts next week about Tesco's plans for WGC town centre.
The supermarket giant has put forward a �300m scheme to transform Broadwater Road.
Its vision for the former Shredded Wheat site includes a large central "piazza" containing cafes and bars, a swimming pool, and a supermarket.
There would also be up to 1,100 homes and new employment space, as well as a new footbridge over the railway track, providing a link to the rest of the town centre.
