Lidl unveils plans to build new supermarket in Llandudno Junction

A supermarket’s plans to build on a historic site in Llandudno Junction were unveiled during a public consultation.

Lidl intend to build a new store on the current Daily Post and Arriva sites on Vale Road by 2019. If given the green light, 40 new jobs would be created.

Proposals include the reduction of a bus layby on New Road, outside the Daily Post, to make space for the new access road.

Councilor Sue Shotter, of Marl ward, where the plans are based, has mixed opinions on the development.

She said: “I’m very supportive of the idea of job creation and bringing life to the area. I also like it that Lidl bring in stock and take away their recycling in the same van in one go, causing less traffic in the area and less noise.

”What does concern me is Lidl’s plan the plan for the new access road. Many cars use that road to go to Deganwy and Llandudno. My concern would be backlog of traffic coming from all directions off the roundabout.

”The plans also didn’t show any development for the Vale Laundry site which desperately needs something doing to it.”

Lidl were pleased with the turnout and will now look at the feedback before deciding whether to pursue their plans.

Lidl UK’s regional head of property, Stuart Jardine said:“We are pleased with the response received at the consultation. The event was well attended, with many people wanting to see the site regenerated.

“We received lots of feedback and will now consider all the comments and make amendments to the proposals as appropriate.”
