Old Gas Club land to become a Lidl Supermarket?

Recommended Posts

It's Lidl planning on building. Crazy idea as the area is already busy and adding more traffic to a already congested area is silly.

There is alternative shops from this brand that can be easily got to if people wish to shop there.

It will also have a detrimental effect on the surround area shops with the possibility of more closed units and boarded up shops.

The plan should be rejected

That hasn’t happened anywhere else where a Lidl has been built, so why would it happen here?

Plan should be accepted, it'll be good for the locals that don't have cars and will be useful for Hillsborough locals, especially when they demolish parts of the Hillsborough exchange shopping centre.

 

As for shops plenty of charities, nail bars etc cashing in on the empty units..... Far foods prime example rent increased and they shut up shop, now to be a Sue Ryder. Its business rates and high rents that are shutting shops down not competing store, the council are bleeding them dry.:loopy:

There is also Morrisons and Sainsbury's near by so already plenty of accessible places to go

I agree, what's wrong with competition and consumer choice. For a non car owner, Hillsborough resident Sainsbury's is not an option whereas as LIdil on the tram route would be ideal

Except Lidl is a lot cheaper and much better value than either of those options?

I think you would have to live on or near Stannington Road to realise what the problems would be. Nimbys we certainly are not!!!

I agree, Stannington road in the mornings is horrendous, on occasions queuing right up to Stanwood Ave but the bottle neck is at the bottom where the Gas Club is, where the road joins Holme Lane and the rest of the off shoots.

Supermarkets open early and Malins Bridge morning chaos can last upto 9.45am, try it sometime get amongst the school run. Then you have the same experience late afternoon.

Lidl stores open at 8 at the earliest, very few people go shopping then. It tends to be passing traffic dropping in, rather than people heading there as a destination.

Any news on this? I see it’s all rubble there now where it’s been knocked down.
