The Proposed Development
- A new neighbourhood discount food store.
- Provision of a brand new discount food store (1,025m² sales area, 678m² of ancillary space) with 55 free parking bays of which 4 will be disabled spaces and 5 parent and child spaces.
- Contemporary foodstore building with a mixture of materials in-keeping with the local area.
- Soft and hard landscaping treatment to be applied to all external areas.
- A limited range of products (2,000 lines) necessitating continued use of existing local retailers.
It is proposed that the store will be open between the hours of:
- 7am to 11pm Monday to Saturday (including Bank Holidays); and
- 10am to 6pm Sunday.
An average day will see between 1-2 HGV deliveries to the store per day. All store waste will be collected at the same time as the deliveries, therefore minimising HGV movements within the site.
Proposed Lidl store
The proposed building is designed to respond and enhance the site’s characteristics in terms of its configuration, surrounding built environment and relationship to the variety of uses within the vicinity. A quality palette of materials will be used throughout the development. See below a photo montage demonstrating how the site might look in context.
