Plans for a brand new Morrisons on the Smithfield site, Shrewsbury Road have been put forward to Oswestry Town Council.

Shoppers were left confused when a post was submitted on a local social media page to say the new plans for a Morrisons supermarket were on display in store.

The plans include a 25,000 sq ft supermarket with a petrol station, specialist car wash, a hub for tyre changes, cafe, Barista Bar, a garden centre and a new roundabout.

It will aim to create 60 full and part time jobs in addition with the 100 jobs already belonging to those at the Morrisons on Station Road, which will remain open as normal whilst development is carried out.

The Smithfield site had plans to be transformed into a £45 million complex with leisure and dining facilities as part of a project nearly four years ago.

The previous plans were for a Cineworld, Morrisons Supermarket, Frankie and Bennys restaurant and a Mcdonalds restaurant to be development on the 16-acre site, but Cineworld pulled out.

Steven Williams, store manager at Oswestry Morrisons denied any plans were made public in the store.

He said: "As far as I am aware there wasn't any plans for customers to view in the store.

"We re-submitted plans to the council for the new site but that is as far as we've got."

Dave Preston said: "On the basis of this being reported to the council it was unfortunate the information was not made public formally to the council and for a public consultation.

"Conformation has been given and in addition assurance has been given. Members of the council will be meeting with Morrisons in the near future."

It is believed that leaflets will be handed out to residents in the next few days.
