More details have been released by Lidl on the opening of their new store in Marlow.

The German international discount retailer had their planning permission approved on June 3 by the council allowing them to undertake work on the vacant building on Chapel Street.

Formerly occupied by Waitrose, who left the site in October 2019, the building was almost taken over by a nursery that had its proposals accepted in February 2020.

However, after the nursery's plans fell through, Lidl looks set to acquire the building with plans to remove an existing boundary wall and erect a series of extensions onto Liston Road, with a new trolley bay and bollards.

The store entrance will be on Liston Road with no entry via Chapel Street, which will be  the back of the supermarket.

Lidle have launched a new website allowing the local community to look at an overview of the development plans.

A statement from the website reads: “Lidl has been granted planning permission by Buckinghamshire Council to undertake various works to a vacant building on Chapel Street and Liston Road, Marlow.

“These works will enable Lidl to open a new foodstore in a convenient location for residents of the town.

“The building was formerly occupied by Waitrose but has been vacant since they closed their store in 2019.

“It lies in the Marlow Conservation Area and Lidl proposes works to extend and alter the appearance of the building, in a way that is appropriate in the Conservation Area.

“These works will enable Lidl to occupy the building and operate a foodstore that accords with Lidl’s latest specification.

“As part of our ongoing commitment to public consultation, we have designed this website to give the local community an overview of our exciting development proposals”.
