A new Lidl supermarket, six shops and a Costa Coffee drive-thru will also be built on the site old swimming baths, after plans were approved.

The development, on the site of the former Beechdale Baths on the corner of Beechdale Road and Western Boulevard, will also have a 153-space car park.

Lidl, West Bridgford

In November last year, plans were revealed to bring a Lidl, five apartment blocks, a retirement accommodation and a pub to West Bridgford.

The plans are yet to be given the final seal of approval.

The development could be built on a vacant piece of land in Wilford Lane, opposite the ROKO health club and next to the Becket School.

 

The company behind the plans said the broader development represents a £20m investment in the area.

It is part of a much wider scheme which would involve a Lidl store with 350 car parking spaces, a pub with an outside seating area, a drive-thru coffee shop, 231 flats in five apartment blocks and 75 retirement apartments.

Lidl, Mansfield Woodhouse

Plans have already been submitted for a new Lidl supermarket in Mansfield Woodhouse which could generate up to 50 jobs.

The new discount supermarket could be built on the former site of the Rippon Homes head office, off Leeming Lane South.

The planning application, submitted by Nottingham-based Aspbury Planning, said Lidl “are not currently represented in Mansfield” and there is “limited discount retail foodstore presence” in the town.

It is proposed to be for town centre use and would come with a 103 bay car park, of which six will be disabled with a further eight parent and child spaces.

Buses would provide access to the store from Mansfield town centre and the proposed site is within walking distance from Mansfield Woodhouse district centre.

Lidl,  Sutton-in-Ashfield
A new Lidl store is expected to be built on the former Pretty Polly site in Sutton-in-Ashfield.

Planning bosses had recommended the designs be rejected, but councillors voted to allow the development, on Mansfield Road and Eastside, Sutton-in-Ashfield, by a majority vote.

It had been feared the scheme would draw business and footfall away from Sutton town centre and the local shopping centre of Outram Street, potentially adversely affecting local business.

But the committee agreed the stores location would not have a significant impact on footfall, and would provide an economic boost to the town.

The plans were approved by a majority of nine to one.
