On behalf of Almscliffe Dhesi Developments (Stanley) Ltd, DPP have secured planning permission for the construction of a new Lidl store on brownfield land which previously operated as a bus depot along Chester Road in Stanley.
Designed by Ellis Healey Architecture, the new Lidl store will bring a vacant brownfield site back into viable use, and will increase the variety of stores on offer in Stanley alongside serving the shopping needs of local residents.
Due to the site’s location outside of Stanley town centre, DPP prepared and submitted a Retail Impact Assessment which demonstrated that the impact of the new Lidl store on the designated centres within the primary catchment area would be negligible and would not harm the vitality and viability of those centres in accordance with local and national planning policy.
Speaking about the consent, Nicola Crowley, Principal Planner at DPP, said:
We are delighted to have secured unanimous approval at planning committee for this scheme which will enhance consumer choice for local residents in Stanley and create new jobs
