Lidl has submitted plans to convert the former Homebase unit in Hedge End, Hampshire, into a new supermarket.

If plans are approved, up to 40 new jobs would be created at the Hedge End Retail Park site, which will be split into two parts.  Plans also include an extension and exterior refurbishment.

Hedge End Homebase closed at the end of 2018 and has been vacant ever since. 

A Lidl spokesperson said: “Plans have been submitted for a new Lidl supermarket on Hedge End Retail Park with 1,438sqm sales area, which will create up to 40 new jobs for local economy.

“The supermarket will also feature facilities including an in-store bakery, customer toilet and ample parking spaces.

“We’re now looking forward to receiving a decision in the coming months with a view to opening next year. “

The remaining unit would be 2,065 sq m in size and feature a garden centre and a small convenience goods area, according to the Southern Daily Echo. While no tenant is confirmed, it is anticipated that a variety retailer offering home, furniture and DIY products will take on the building.

Further work on the wider site will include a park with a play feature and seating, two electric charging points for four electric vehicles and a bicycle shelter.
