Lidl unveils plans for Cheshire store

Julia Hatmaker

The grocery store chain has launched a consultation for a 15,000 sq ft store on Caldy Valley Retail Park in Great Boughton.

Lidl recently purchased the freehold for the 35,079 sq ft retail park, which is located off Caldy Valley Road. The company said it would submit a planning application to Cheshire West and Chester Council shortly for the site.

Under its plans, Lidl wants to replace the 7,500 sq ft Rightway and 9,974 sq ft B&M currently at the retail park with the new store. Lidl would retain the 7,580 sq ft Halfords and 10,025 sq ft Pets at Home stores at the retail park.

Lidl wants to refurbish and reconfigure the retail park’s retail units and existing car park as well. The grocer’s plans include creating secure cycle spaces to go along with 200 car parking spaces, which would include nine accessible spaces and 10 parent and child ones.

Thinking of sustainability, Lidl said the store would have solar panels on its roof and electric vehicle charging points in the car park.
