Lidl Recommended for Approval / April, 2021

Plans to create a 20,000 sq ft supermarket at Altrincham Retail Park by subdividing the existing Homebase unit have been recommended for approval by the council.

If approved, the Homebase unit would be expanded to cover a total of 58,000 sq ft, and be subdivided to provide two retail units – one for Lidl and one for Homebase. The plans also propose 13,200 sq ft for a garden centre for Homebase, to be located next to the unit.

The architect for the project is the Harris Partnership. Rapley’s and Montagu Evans are the planning consultants for Lidl and Homebase respectively.
