Proposed Lidl Development: Cllr Mark Lewis responds

May 29, 2019 12:33 PM


The application for a new store in Brentwood , along the Ongar Road, has been submitted and local people are asked for their views by the council and the developer. In response, newly-elected Cllr Mark Lewis has the following comments:

Cllr Mark Lewis"Many people will like Lidl but, of course, those most affected are the ones that live nearest to it in Brentwood North and in the wider town centre. It has the possibility to draw in a significant amount of traffic/people from outside the immediate area and the adverse implications are significant. In its current format, I do not find the proposal acceptable for a number of reasons:

I would urge residents to view the planning application HERE and make their representations to the council and their local councillors.The Brentwood Gazette also has an excellent summary here.

Cllr Mark Lewis represents Brentwood North and is happy to speak to residents about the application, as are his ward colleagues Cllr Alison Fulcher and Cllr Philip Mynott.
