After the £50m Lidl development on Wilford Lane was rejected last night, Lidl say they remain committed to bringing a store to the area.
Dominic Bryan, Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property told The Wire:
“Naturally we are disappointed with the Planning Committee’s decision.
“Had planning consent been granted, our store would have delivered around 40 new full and part-time jobs and provided more shopping choice in the local area.
“We remain committed to bringing a new store to West Bridgford and will now discuss our options with the development team at Simons.
“We look forward to sharing updated plans with the local community in the not too distant future.”
The proposals were rejected 7 to 3 against at a meeting of Rushcliffe Borough Council’s planning committee on 18th July.
