A major development in a Leicestershire town could happen after years of waiting, officials have said.
Hinckley's Bus Station site, which also contains empty factories, shops and car parks, has been neglected for eight years after earlier plans fell through.
Now Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council has said a call for new ideas has attracted 15 developers.
Officials said they want to see a landmark project delivering shops, entertainment and transport links.
Council leader David Bill said he was very pleased so many companies had submitted ideas for the site which sits alongside Brunel Road.
"As members we have only seen the outline picture of what may happen.
"Some are quite straightforward with a supermarket and a car park and a cinema but some are quite futuristic and could really put the town on the map."
The council will evaluate the schemes and come up with a shortlist by 22 February. It will then go out to public consultation in May.
