Lidl Announces Plans For New Store on Site of Former McCain Stadium



German discount supermarket chain Lidl have announced plans to build a new store in Scarborough, on the site of the former McCain Stadium.

Lidl will reveal details of the planned new foodstore at a consultation event next month at Falsgrave Community Resource Centre on Seamer Road.

The event will take place on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 February alongside an exhibition of the proposed designs for the new Scarborough leisure village.

Representatives from Scarborough Council and Lidl will be on hand to answer questions and collect feedback and details will also be available on the council's website from Wednesday 4 February.

Lidl has grown consistently since establishing itself in the UK in 1994. Today the company has over 610 stores in England, Scotland and Wales and employs over 16,000 people. The new Scarborough store is expected to create up to 30 full and part time positions.

This development is one of the enabling sites which will help fund the new Scarborough leisure village.

Cllr Tom Fox, Leader of Scarborough Borough Council said:

"We are holding this public consultation at Falsgrave Community Resource Centre so that the consultation is conducted within easy reach of the communities that are directly affected by the proposal at the former football ground."

A spokesperson for Lidl added:

"Today we are very excited to announce plans for a new Lidl Foodstore on the site of the former Scarborough Football Stadium."

"The proposed store will have a sales area of 1286m2 and a dedicated in store bakery allowing us to stock our full range of fantastic bakery products. A free customer car park with 99 spaces is proposed and we predict that the store will create up to 30 full and part time positions."

Developers Wrenbridge Land Ltd and Lidl will use the feedback gained from the consultation to form part of the formal planning applications for the site, which is due to be submitted to the council's planning department by the end of February for consideration.
