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.

The two companies last locked horns at a public inquiry in the town in 2001 after Tesco appealed against the refusal of its 1999 planning application to build a store on the Brett Works site.
