Plans for a £200m revamp of Telford Shopping Centre have been revealed.

Under the proposals, the current Asda supermarket would be redeveloped and new shops, cafes and restaurants built on the Red Oak car park site.

Plans by developers Sovereign Land also include the building of a hotel and leisure complex in Central Square.

It said it would complement the £250m Southwater scheme, which is being built by Telford and Wrekin Council and leisure developers Citigrove.

Sovereign said it was holding a three-day consultation event in the shopping centre, from Thursday.

Work could start next Spring, once Asda had relocated to its new store on the old civic offices site, it said.

Telford and Wrekin council has given its backing to the plans.

Council leader Kuldip Sahota said: "It's a very exciting time and these ideas, subject to planning approval, would give Telford a mix of leisure and retail that most destinations would die for."
