The first site Stockwell Gate North is the old bus station, which will be closed when Kier Marriott completes a £12m job to build a modern bus interchange.
The council has also put the site of the town’s old indoor market up for grabs to be regenerated as a site for major retailers in the town centre.
Council chiefs said they were willing to enter discussions with developers to increase the scope of either project. Between four and six operators will be invited to tender.
