Lidl UK has announced that it will be holding a public consultation event to outline its proposals for a new store on Hayes Way, Patchway.
The proposed site (see map below) is a triangular plot of undeveloped land south of Hayes Way, between the Travelodge on Gloucester Road and the entrance to the new Aerospace Bristol museum. This site has existing planning permission for employment use, granted as part of the outline planning application for the wider Charlton Hayes (Northfield) development.
The public are invited to attend the event, which will take place from 2pm to 7pm on Wednesday 25th October at Patchway Community Centre, Rodway Road, Patchway BS34 5PF. Here, Lidl’s dedicated property team will be on hand to outline the supermarket group’s plans for a new store and answer any questions from the local community.
Subject to planning consent being granted by South Gloucestershire Council, the multi-million pound investment will see Lidl commit to building a new store with 1,325m² sales area on a 14,187m² site, with plans to create up to 40 new jobs.
Lidl UK’s regional head of property, Glen Stidever, commented:
“We are extremely excited about the prospect of opening a Lidl in Patchway and serving our fresh, quality and incredibly good value produce which shoppers across the country have come to love. We look forward to welcoming anyone along to the public consultation event and showcasing our plans whilst answering any questions.”
The planned development in Patchway will add to Lidl’s existing portfolio of 680 stores, and will form part of the company’s growth plans which hope to see this increase to 1,500 stores in the future.
The company says it hopes to submit a planning application in November.
