Lidl to re­veal plans for new store

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
