A supermarket in Grantham is set to be demolished and completely rebuilt.
A planning application submitted to SKDC seeks permission to demolish Lidl, in Watergate, and build a brand new supermarket in its place. There would also be access to the car park via Watergate – access is currently available via Union Street only.
The supermarket chain has appointed WCEC to redesign the store, which, if plans are approved, will have an “enhanced visual impact”, feature red brick columns and dummy glazing to “mimic the style of shop fronts further along Watergate” and allow the installation of an in-store bakery.
Meanwhile, the redevelopment of the car park would see the current 86 spaces reduced to 77, which would be made up of 69 standard, four disabled and four parent and child. There would also be a new trolley bay and an area for cycle storage.
