• Lidl Shaftesbury CGI


Lidl are promoting a new neighbourhood foodstore on Christys Lane Shaftesbury. The site is the former Livestock Market.

As part of our ongoing commitment to public consultation, we are delighted to be able to provide members of the local community with an overview of our exciting development proposals. This website provides links to our draft planning application that will be submitted to North Dorset Council in due course.

We held a Public Consultation Event on 11th April 2019 at Shaftesbury Youth Centre to allow local residents and other interested parties the chance to offer their opinion and suggestions while learning more about the development.

Should you decide to support the Lidl proposal, or simply wish to get in touch to discuss the application, please follow the above links.

The Proposed Development

  • Provision of a new 1,261m² (net sales) neighbourhood foodstore;
  • Improved choice and competition for local shoppers;
  • 119 car parking spaces including, 8 Disabled spaces, 8 Parent & Child spaces and 2 motorcycling spaces; and
  • Creation of up to 40 jobs for local residents.
