How to Support Us

If you are keen to see a new Lidl foodstore in Rainham, please show your support for the proposed Lidl application in 3 ways:

  1. Visit: our survey site and complete the short survey.
  2. Write a support letter or send a support email, and send copies to and/or telephone your local Councillors.
  3. Submit a formal support comment directly to the Havering’s planning website by following this link to the Lidl application.

The online petition will demonstrate the overall level of support for the Lidl application. However, personal letters/emails/phone calls of support will carry significantly more weight. To give the Lidl application the best chance of success, please help us by voicing your support.

Letters or emails need not be long, but should concentrate on ‘planning issues’ to be the most effective. Example ‘planning issues’ are outlined on the Reasons To Support Us page
