Share this article

A MANEA businessman was yesterday due to unveil ambitious plans for a new supermarket in Wisbech.

Richard Sears, of ICIS Developments, was due to host an exhibition for local councillors at the Boathouse Business Centre, titled ‘Vision for Lynn Road’.

It is understood that the exhibition features plans for a new supermarket development near the new Wisbech Town Football Ground.

A spokesperson from West Norfolk Borough Council said their planning department had not been approached yet about a development of this nature.

Liz Dent, from ICIS, felt it would be premature to comment at this time but details will be released at a later stage.

Mr Sears is the agent behind a similar application in Chatteris, where Tesco have recently confirmed they will be building a store off Fenland Way.
