This petition is now closed.
Our proposal comprises the erection of a new store with associated access, car parking and landscaping on land to the north of Blue Boar Lane, Sprowston. The store will extend to 2,526 sq. m gross internal area with a net sales area of 1,689 sq. m.
Our new store will be supported by 120 car parking spaces, including 6 dedicated disabled and 7 parent and child spaces, together with cycle parking and storage provision.
A new vehicular access is proposed off the existing access and roundabout via Blue Boar Lane. This access will be designed to accommodate both cars and HGVs to ensure safe access for vehicles entering and leaving the site. Pedestrian access will be provided from Blue Boar Lane via existing pedestrian walkways to the south of the site.
It is proposed that the store will be open between the hours of:
• 7am to 10pm Monday to Saturday; and
• 10am to 4pm Sunday.
All waste will be stored within the warehouse area to the rear of the store and will be collected at the same time as deliveries, thereby minimising HGV movements. It should be noted that there will be a maximum of two deliveries per day.
Our new store will provide the following benefits to the local area:
- A purpose built store that will provide a clean and fresh shopping experience to meet the needs of customers.
- A dedicated in-store bakery.
- Improved shopping choice and provision of a new mainstream discount operator for Sprowston.
- A contemporary building design that will complement the surrounding area.
- Landscaping that will improve the visual amenity of the site.
Several new job opportunities will also be created by the development, with up to 40 new jobs by the store alone. In addition, we were the first major food retailer to pay its staff the UK National Living Wage.
We, the undersigned, fully support Lidl’s application for a new store on land to the north of Blue Boar Lane, Sprowston.
