Lidl would like to open a new foodstore in Southport, on land off Marine Drive and Crossens Way.
Lidl is committed to public consultation and is delighted to provide the community with an opportunity to review the development plans. A joint planning application has been submitted with Saltmarsh Estates, who wish to create eight employment units on part of the site. We are inviting your feedback on both parts of the proposal.

A joint planning application will be submitted with Saltmarsh Estates, who wish to create five employment units on part of the site. We are inviting your feedback on both parts of the proposal.
This website provides details of the planning application which will be submitted to Sefton Council. If you have any questions about the proposals, please email email@example.com or call 0800 089 0361. To ‘Have Your Say’ on the proposals, please click here.
This site has long been earmarked for employment uses. The proposed foodstore and industrial units will deliver a large number of jobs and we believe it would be a suitable occupier in this location.
Our joint planning application will include a detailed Transport Assessment, which will be
reviewed by Sefton Council’s Highways Team. The Transport Assessment will take into consideration issues such as Lidl’s expected busiest periods, traffic associated with the employment units and link trip data.
The site is well-located for pedestrians from nearby housing areas.
Secure cycle parking for staff and customers is proposed in a well-monitored
location, close to the store entrance. The site is well-connected to the local cycle network,
which will enable cycling as a substitute for short car trips.
The site is well-located for the bus network.
Everyone knows we’re Lidl on price. So, it’s time to tell you what we’re Big on.
We’re Big on Quality. Big on the big shop. Big on all the things that matter. Big on the things that make cupboards and bellies and life feel fuller. Big on detergent that gets your socks white and cheese that knocks them off. Big on carrots that crunch and chillies with bite. Big on cuisine from far and wide, and meat from local farmers. Big on brands and biscuits and baby stuff and bicycle pumps and butter. We’re Big on everything.
Except of course, on price, because that’s where we’ll always be Lidl.
Lidl first opened its doors in Great Britain in 1994 and currently has over 24,500 employees, 800 stores and 13 distribution centres in England, Scotland and Wales. Lidl takes pride in providing top quality products at the lowest prices.
The Lidl retail philosophy is focused on simplicity and maximum efficiency at every stage of the business, from supplier to customer, enabling the company to sell high quality own brand products at the lowest prices.
Lidl is committed to sourcing high quality fresh meat, poultry, fruit and veg from British farms. We work closely with Red Tractor to ensure that our British meat, poultry, fruit and veg is responsibly sourced to strict food hygiene, animal welfare and environmental standards, with every pack traceable to the farm of origin. This guarantees our customers a fresh, locally sourced, high quality range of meat and poultry at excellent value.
Lidl GB sells over 50 different Fairtrade certified products, from bananas originating from Colombia, tea picked in Kenya and cocoa for our chocolate, grown in Cote d’Ivoire. In addition to the products we sell all year round, we proudly support specific Fairtrade campaigns such as Fairtrade Fortnight. This is an opportunity to give a voice to farmers and growers throughout the world.
The new Marine Drive store would feature our famous ‘Middle of Lidl’ products. Our ever-changing middle aisle offers customers the opportunity to purchase non-food household items at bargain prices. Click here to see this week’s offers.
The proposed store will meet Lidl’s high sustainability standards which are intended to minimise environmental impact over the lifetime of the store.
LIDL HAS COMMITTED TO BEING:
Good for Producers – including championing the British food and farming sector, focusing on our supplier relationships, human rights and ethical trade, and animal welfare
Good for People – including healthy eating, supporting charities such as the NSPCC and by becoming the employer of choice in our sector
Good for our Planet – by promoting a low carbon economy, minimising food waste, ensuring our supply chains are deforestation free and by reducing, recycling and re-using plastics and packaging

A joint planning application for the proposed new Lidl supermarket and employment units will be submitted to Sefton Council, who will make a decision on whether to approve the store proposals.
If you want our project to be successful, it is vitally important that you make your views known so that they can be taken into account when the Council’s Planning Committee decides whether to approve or refuse the application.
If you are keen to see a new neighbourhood foodstore on Marine Drive, please indicate your support for the application on the feedback form (click here). Alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As with all developments there will be people who are for and people who are against the development and it is very important that everyone has their say. We would ask those people who have concerns about the proposals to contact us by (clicking here) and completing a feedback form. We will then seek to address these wherever possible.
