DEVELOPERS behind the proposed Walton Green superstore and homes project at Felixstowe have today revealed a glimpse of what the scheme could look like.

The partnership – landowners Trinity College, Cambridge, and Tesco – have issued two computer-generated images showing the 30,000 sq ft supermarket from the car park, and the view of the café and part of the community building from Walton High Street.

Plans for the 30-acre scheme are expected to be delivered to Suffolk Coastal council within a few weeks.

Consultation on another superstore – on land next to the town’s railway station – is already under way.

Matt Hill, of Tesco corporate affairs department, said: “We’ve worked hard to design a store which reflects the Walton area, using local materials and creating a light, bright and airy environment for shoppers.

“It will be set in attractive landscaping, with trees and green spaces complementing the new allotments for local residents.

“This will offer people a pleasant alternative to driving out of Felixstowe for their weekly food shop, encouraging local spending as well as providing 250 much-needed new jobs.”

Tim Collins, speaking for the Walton Green Partnership, said: “The new Tesco food store is a key part of creating a sustainable development at Walton Green, delivering more choice for the growing community.

“It links in tightly with the new small business units, open space, allotments and new homes which will all be delivered to a high standard.”

The scheme will feature around 180 new homes including affordable housing, live/work units, community facilities, and a link road connecting Walton High Street with the Candlet Road Walton by-pass.
