Permission sought for new Lidl store in Alexandria
Discount supermarket chain Lidl has submitted an application for planning permission to build a new store in Alexandria.
The proposal details a building with a sales area of 1,251 square metres, as well as an in-store bakery, customer toilets with baby changing facilities, and parking for both cars and bikes.
Gordon Rafferty, Lidl GB’s regional head of property, said the multi-million-pound investment will create around 40 jobs for the local economy.
He said: “Following community consultation with groups in the local area, we are delighted to announce that we have submitted a planning application to West Dunbartonshire Council.
“If granted, the new store would mark a multi-million-pound investment in the area, and the creation of new jobs when the store opens.
“We would like to take the opportunity to thank the Alexandria community for their participation in the consultation process.”
