Lidl have exchanged an option agreement on a site at Rookery Field, Manor Road, Hayling Island. We are delighted to be in a position to commence consultation with the local community on Lidl’s proposed plans for a new neighbourhood discount foodstore.
The subject site is situated on the roundabout junction of Manor Road and Church Road. The site is previously undeveloped and is currently being used as a paddock. The proposed Lidl site is a 2.86 acre plot and would be accessed via a new bellmouth entrance off Manor Road.
Lidl propose the construction of a bespoke two-storey building to accommodate a 2,462m² Lidl foodstore with a sales area of 1,424m². The entirety of the sales area and warehouse will be at ground level, with a small first floor area providing staff amenity space only. The building will be positioned along the southern boundary with a fully glazed shopfront to maximise natural daylight. The proposed store will be in line with Lidl’s new store concept which was formulated with the view of providing the customer with much improved shopping experience.
The proposed development will also provide 129 parking spaces situated to the front and side of the store including disabled spaces and parent and child spaces close to the store entrance. It is proposed that free parking will be offered to customers for a period of 90 minutes. There will also be an area for cycle parking.
Lidl is not a one-stop shop, linked shopping trips with other retailers would be likely. The development would not only aid competition in the area, but would also bring greater shopping choice to local residents and create up to 40 new local jobs.
We will shortly be publishing a full set of development plans and we have launched a website (www.hayling-island.lidl.co.uk) as part of our comprehensive public consultation exercise.
We agree to our petition data being used by Lidl to lobby local Councillors and Havant Borough Council to aid progression of the planning application.
Address data may also be used to provide updates on the progress of the development / planning process. Information will not be passed to a third party, nor be used for sales purposes.
