Tesco says its plans will regenerate the area of the seaside town
A Devon town council has called for a public inquiry into plans for a Tesco supermarket.
Seaton council says the store, which won planning permission from the county council earlier in September, is too big and will hit sales in other shops.
The town council wants an inquiry into the impact of bringing in thousands of tonnes of infill to raise the level of the site.
Tesco says it will do all it can to reduce the impact of lorries.
The town council wants the majority of the infill to be brought in by boat to the site, which is near the seafront.
Tesco said bringing in infill materials by lorry would "inevitably cause some disruption, but without it, there can be no regeneration".
It plans to build a visitor centre, cycle track, leisure and tourism facilities and new housing alongside the store.
The county council wants no more than 40 lorries a day coming into the site.
