The Leeds office of DPP has secured planning approval for a new supermarket on Brighton Street in west Hull.
The approved proposal will transform a former car showroom which now lies vacant into a 2,470 sq. m gross, 1,424 sq. m net Lidl foodstore.
The new Lidl supermarket will replace an existing Lidl in Hessle Road, which will be closing because it is too small and outdated to fully meet Lidl’s customer requirements and the company’s expansion plans.
“This proposal will improve the shopping offer in this part of West Hull, regenerate a brownfield site and help to increase the footfall and activity to the Hessle Road District Centre,” says Michelle Bath, Director at DPP’s Leeds Office.
Construction is due to start in January 2017.
