AN exhibition to give the public a chance to see plans for a new 400-job supermarket is to be extended.

Asda is considering building a new 45,000 sq ft store on the former Mono Containers factory site in the Dragonville area of Durham City.

The company plans to hold a public exhibition on Friday (Jan 10) to outline its proposals ahead of a formal planning application being submitted to Durham County Council within the next few months.

Members of the public will be able to view plans and talk to Asda staff at Laurel Avenue Community Centre, in Durham from 10am onwards.

The exhibition was originally due to be open until 4pm, but the finish time has now been extended until 5.30pm.

A company spokesman said: "This is to give as many people as possible who have already shown an interest the chance to come and view the proposal."
