Planning officers are recommending a proposal by Tesco over a rival bid by Sainsbury's.

A council spokesman said: "The number of people who have so far indicated that they wish to speak on the applications is 60.

"The time for each speaker will be strictly limited and people will be asked not to repeat points already made by a previous speaker.

"The public seating area has been limited to 200 for the safety and comfort of all attending the meeting.

"The public will be admitted on a first-come-first-served basis and doors will be closed once the available seating has been filled."

A sign to this effect will be displayed at the entrance to Seaton Town Hall, where the meeting is being held, in the days leading up to the meeting.
