bridges-logoSUNDERLAND SHOPPERS will be able to get the first look at the exciting new expansion plans for the Bridges, with an exhibition of the proposed development going on display this weekend (Oct 17).

The new scheme includes a new large store for an as yet unnamed leading retailer adjacent to the centre and will provide improved public spaces and new parking facilities.

As part of the planning process, local people are being given the opportunity to share their views and with that in mind, an informal exhibition showcasing the plans will be on view on Saturday 17 October from 10am to 4.30pm and on Sunday 18 October from 11.30am and 4pm.

Visitors to the exhibition, in Central Square at the Bridges, will be invited to give their feedback, or alternatively they can view the plans and give their feedback on line at www.thebridges-shopping.comfrom Oct 17.

All feedback and comments are welcomed by Nov 2 2015.

“This is a very exciting time for the Bridges,” said Andy Bradley, Centre Director.

“And we hope as many people as possible will come and view the plans and let us know their thoughts.”
