Lidl plan to locate store in Bettystown Town Centre

German retailer Lidl is to planning to open a supermarket in a unit in the Bettystown Town Centre development.

The discount food chain has lodged a planning application with Meath County Council seeking permission for amendments to the ground floor unit in Block F of the Bettystown Town Centre.

The application includes a series of amendments to a previously granted planning application which amalgamated two units for use as a retail unit.

Among the amendments are changes to the car park layout, an extension of the entrance pod and external entrance canopy, a proposed new Deposit Return Scheme for recycling room and new location for customer toilets and a new store layout to include larger sales area.

A new layout for warehouse officer and chiller and ESB room, and new LIDL sign on front of ESB room are proposed as well as a new location for the bakery and freezer room, new location for staff welfare/canteen facilities and inclusion of full height glazing on north west of the elevation.

There is already a Tesco supermarket in the Bettystown Town Centre and the long awaited new East Meath Primary Care Centre is also due to open in the coming months in the town centre development.
