Warstock Road, Kings Heath
Planning Approved for Lidl Store
Birmingham City Councils planning committee meeting on 20th December 2018 approved the plan to demolish the existing buildings on the 1.8 acre site which also housed a former Western Power depot. The new store, which will extend to 2,125 sq. metres with a net retail sales area of 1,324 sq. metres, is expected to create up to 40 jobs and will have a dedicated in-store bakery.

The store, which is being constructed by multidisciplinary contractor Winvic, will feature an attractive, single storey unit with a glazed frontage, an in-store bakery and will have a car park with capacity for 120 spaces. The supermarket will be built on the former Western Power Distribution Depot on Warstock Road next to the Esso garage on Alcester Road South. As part of the development, a new pedestrian access point will also be created to provide a direct route to the store from Warstock Road.
Completion of Lidl Store
Building work on a new Lidl store in Kings Heath, Birmingham, is now complete and Godwin will be handing over the project in February 2020. Godwin Developments has signed a 25-year deal on the 22,000 sq.ft supermarket, which is expected to create 40 jobs in the local community when it opens in May 2020. Matt Chandler, associate director at Godwin Developments said: “We are very excited to have completed on the Kings Heath site. As well as bringing a brand-new retail site to the area, we also expect to see the project reinvigorate the old and disused facility, by replacing it with a bright and welcoming retail store. This will in turn, spark further development and regeneration in the surrounding area of the city.”
