Plans for new Lidl store in Naas blocked by Kildare County Council
8:17 Saturday 22nd of September 2018

Kildare County Council have refused a planning application from Lidl Ireland to build a new store in Naas.

The proposed store was planned for the junction of Maudlins Avenue on the Dublin road, and the development would have cost in the region of €2.6 million.

There is already one Lidl store in the town located near the Millennium Business Park on the Newbridge Road, but Kildare County Council are not allowing the construction of a second store to go ahead.

The application from Lidl Ireland detailed plans for a licensed, discount foodstore with a gross internal area of 2,207 sq metres incorporating an off-licence area and three ancillary, retail/service units in a corner block rising to two storeys, within a neighbour centre arrangement which includes enhanced public realm and pedestrian permeability including a pedestrian crossing on Maudlins Avenue. A single point of vehicular access and egress would be on Maudlins Avenue.

Lidl Ireland are entitled to appeal the decision to An Bord Pleanála.
