Lidl are proposing a new food store on Land at Hamm Beach Road, Portland, Weymouth.
The new store will extend to 1,799 sq. m (Gross Internal Area) with a sales area of 1,104 sq. m. The development will be supported by 114 parking spaces at surface level, including 8 disabled and 8 parent and child spaces with associated landscaping.
Pedestrians will be able to access the site from one dedicated access point to the north of the store with a zebra crossing facilitating safe access to the store entrance.
All waste will be stored within the warehouse area and will be collected at the same time as deliveries, thereby minimising HGV movements within the car parking area.
Benefits of the Proposed Development
The new neighbourhood Lidl food store will provide the following benefits to Portland and surrounding local area:
• A purpose built store which provides 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 Portland and the surrounding area;
• A contemporary building design that will complement the surrounding area along with the development of currently disused land;
• Employment opportunities including up to 30 new jobs for local residents;
• Increase the number of people visiting and spending money on the Isle of Portland;
• Landscaping will improve the visual amenity of the site including soft landscaping around the boundary of the site.
It is proposed that the food store will be open between the hours of:
• 8am to 10pm Monday to Saturday (including Bank Holidays), and
• 10am to 4pm or 11am to 5pm Sunday.
We, the undersigned, fully support Lidl's proposed application for a new food store at Land at Hamm Beach Road, Portland, Weymouth.
We agree to our petition data being used to lobby local Councillors and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council.
