Lidl to reveal plans for new store
A BUDGET supermarket is holding an exhibition outlining its proposed new town centre foodstore.
Developers are looking for community feedback on a new Lidl store and smaller retail and leisure units proposals on the former Towers site at Park Green. They are also seeking the public’s views on three design options for the new site before submitting another planning application.
Coun Beverley Dooley, who represents Macclesfield Central, said: “A lot of people feel Lidl would be good for Macclesfield, including small businesses who would like to see it increase the town centre footfall. It’s really good the developers are letting people have a say.”
Lidl submitted an application for the site last year, but withdrew it before submitting revised proposals for a slightly larger store. Proposals go on display in a unit next to the Sweet Emporium in the Grosvenor Centre and will be on display on Friday, May 29, from 2pm until 5.30pm, Saturday, May 30, from 11am until 5.30pm, and Sunday, May 31, 11am to 4pm.
The development team will answer questions there or call the consultation hotline on 0800 040 8404.
