Lidl Seeks to Redevelop Bristol Homebase Site

Lidl has submitted a planning application to allow it to convert a former Homebase in Bristol into two units. 

The application is awaiting a decision, but documents filed with South Gloucestershire Council reveal that Lidl intends to take on one unit, and allow a non-food retailer to move in next door.  It will remove the former Homebase garden centre to create additional parking spaces at the Aldermoor Way site. 

The Longwell Green Homebase branch shut its doors at the end of 2018, having been used as a clearance store to shift dead stock

Lidl currently operates a store less than a mile away in Hanham, and has said that there is sufficient demand for both in the area.

Glen Stidever, Lidl UK’s regional head of property, told local press: “We are delighted to announce that we have submitted a planning application to South Gloucestershire Council.

“If granted this 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 everyone for their support and feedback so far and look forward to receiving the decision in due course.”
