Lidl propose to develop a new store on the site, which will feature an attractive, single storey glazed frontage to Bridge Street, with the car park extending to the north of the store. The new store will extend to 1,934 sq. metres gross internal area (GIA), with a net retail sales area of 1,286 sq. metres. The new store will feature a dedicated in-store bakery close to the main entrance. The delivery bay will be located to the east of the store.

Access will be taken from Bridge Street along the site’s western boundary. The car park will provide 80 standard parking spaces, with 8 disabled spaces, and 8 parent and child spaces, which will be positioned close to the customer entrance. The car park will provide 96 spaces in total.

Dedicated pedestrian access will be provided from Bridge Street to the west of the site, giving direct access to the store entrance through the car park. Bicycle parking will be provided under the entrance canopy on the northern elevation, close to the store entrance and pedestrian access route.

The new Lidl store will provide the following benefits to the local area:

- A brand new store that will provide a clean and fresh shopping experience to meet the needs of customers;
- A dedicated in-store bakery;
- A contemporary building design that will complement the surrounding area;
- Employment opportunities for local residents; and
- Living Wage Foundation rate for all eligible employees and no zero hours contracts.
