Supermarket giant gets green light for build new store and houses in Kilkenny
A new supermarket and housing development has finally been approved by the local authority following a protracted process.
Kilkenny County Council has given the green lightb for Lidl Ireland’s request for planning permission to build a new store on the site of their existing supermarket on the Waterford Road.
As part of the plans, the German Supermarket giant has also been granted permission to build 13 houses on a site adjoining the supermarket.
The retailer can now proceed with their plans to build a larger 2,412 sq mts supermarket, consisting of a foodstore, off-licence and storage area on that site.
The development also includes carparking, signage, landscaping, public lighting, electric vehicle charging points, roof mounted solar panels, a refrigeration and air conditioning plant, and cycle parking.
The decision also grants Lidl permission to construct 13 two-storey, three bed homes on a site next door to the current supermarket.
