Lidl holds open day for public to air views on Rotherham store plan

SUPERMARKET giant is holding a public open day next week over plans for a new Rotherham store.

The consultation event is at Dalton Parish Hall, on Doncaster Road, Dalton, from 3pm to 7pm on Thursday and will see plans outlined for a new branch on Doncaster Road.

Lidl’s dedicated property team and consultants from Walsingham Planning, EJS Highways and SMR Architects will be on hand to outline the plans and answer questions.

Lidl is planning a multi-million pound investment in a “sustainable” store with 1,325 sq m sales area on a 14,000 sq m site, with plans to create up to 40 new jobs. 

The firm said the supermarket would boast an in-store bakery, customer toilets and parking for cars and bicycles.

Regional head of property, Graham Burr, said: “We look forward to welcoming anyone along to the public consultation day and showcasing our plans whilst answering any questions.”

The company plans to submit a planning application by the end of February and anyone wanting to send them their views should email
