Lidl was granted planning permission back in November 2013 for the redevelopment of the Former Stukeley Nurseries site in Huntingdon for a foodstore with a 1,063sqm sales area and 78 car parking spaces.
Lidl’s business model has since evolved in order to provide an improved customer experience through more space between aisles and checkouts and to create operational benefits arising from a more efficient store layout. The result of this being that Lidl now have a requirement for a slightly larger footprint and as such a revised planning application has been submitted to construct a store with a sales area of 1286sqm and 104 car parking spaces (including disabled and parent and child spaces).
The store will provide the town with a much needed discount food store, bringing more shopping choice to the local community and would create approximately 40 new jobs.
We, the undersigned, fully support Lidl's revised application for the development of a neighbourhood foodstore, on the Former Stukeley Road Nurseries site, Stukeley Road, Huntingdon, PE29 6HG.
