TWO of the companies at the centre of a long-running battle to build a supermarket in Hadleigh have asked to make presentations to the town council.
Representatives from QD/Buyright and from Tesco Stores Ltd want to meet the town council's planning department to explain their companies' plans for the future.
QD/Buyright is believed to be planning to redevelop its Calais Street site in Hadleigh to include a supermarket.
The company has declined to comment on its plans at this stage.
