Weymouth supermarket submits plans to extend

Budget retail giant Lidl recently unveiled its new plans to construct an extension for its Weymouth supermarket branch in Dorset as part of an investment scheme involving millions of pounds.

The German-owned chain has now submitted a full planning request to build the add-on in order to accommodate new technology onsite. If planning approval is awarded, the premises based on Weymouth’s Dorchester Road will boast multiple green features, including cutting-edge recycling facilities and all-new rapid charging points for electric vehicles (EVs).

From expanding retail outlets to homeowners planning house extensions on the Wirral and in Weymouth, those in need of extra space often rely on professional architects to draw up designs. Offering expertise and advice, they can also ensure plans meet with local council planning committee requirements, smoothing application processes and helping building projects to receive a green light.

The large-scale project is part of Lidl’s new initiative focusing on saving money for its customer base. The 69-square-metre ancillary extension will not be used for sales but will allow Lidl to introduce banks of Deposit Return System (DRS) contactless recycling machines. The state-of-the art machines will reward customers with special vouchers offering a 10p discount in return for any undamaged empty plastic or glass bottles, as well as aluminium cans that were originally purchased at Lidl.

The planned site for the extension will be the area currently used as a trolley park, and the existing entrance to the supermarket will be reconfigured to provide the space required to fit the new recycling machines. The cans and bottles would then be stored and sorted within the extension.
