Planning Approved for Lidl Store

Birmingham City Council’s 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.

Work Starts on Site

A 25-year deal on the 2,125 sq. metre supermarket has been signed. When complete, the new supermarket is expected to create 40 jobs in the local community. 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.
