Thank you to everyone who supported this petition. The petition is now closed.
Lidl UK have made a planning application (application number 17/01206/FUL) to relocate their existing store in Shirley on from 355 Shirley Road to 392 Shirley Road to provide a new store with improved ancillary areas which will run more efficiently and provide an improved offering to local residents.
The new foodstore will provide 1,655m² of sales floorspace and gross internal area of 2,480m². The store will benefit from 125 free customer parking bays. The existing Shirley store has a sales area of 991m², gross internal area of 1,323m² and 72 parking bays.
The proposed relocation site comprises 3 parcels of land - the former police station, the former council depot and the former Direct Carpets unit on the corner of Villiers Road and Shirley Road. The proposed new contemporary building will be designed with crisp clean lines. The proposed materials palette includes aluminium rainscreen cladding panels set above white textured rendered walls with contrasting pillars and plinth. The shop front will have full height glazing with floor to ceiling windows wrapping around to the entrance lobby and will face directly on to the high street.
The 4 existing trees on the site, 3 of which are protected are proposed for removal, but 15 new semi mature trees will be planted including a tree lined Villiers Road boundary.
There will be a single vehicular access/ egress point on Villiers Road. All plans are available on our website, for which the address is above.
With a larger sales area, back of house areas and car park, the customer experience would be greatly improved, with better stock availability, freshness and a customer W/C.
We encourage you to sign the petition to give us the best chance of obtaining planning consent.
We, the undersigned, fully support Lidl’s application for relocation of their Shirley store.
