Further plans are to be unveiled as part of a continuing regeneration project for a town centre in Berkshire.

The exhibition in Bracknell will show people how a proposed Waitrose store would look and impressions of a new entrance to the Princess Square centre.

Details on further schemes are also expected to be unveiled at the displays in Charles Street from Wednesday to Saturday between 1100 and 1500 GMT.

Representatives will be available to answer questions on the plans.

It comes after latest figures revealed visitors to Princess Square Shopping Centre in February were up 4.2% on last year.

Helen Barnett, from Bracknell Regeneration Partnership, said: "There has been a lot happening over the past few months.

"We want to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to see the latest developments and ask any questions that they may have."

The new Waitrose store could create up to 180 jobs, the supermarket chain said.

The proposed multimillion-pound outlet is earmarked for land between Millennium Way and Bond Way.

The scheme will be subject to planning permission but the chain is hopeful building work can start in April with the store opening early in 2012.
