Lidl has been given permission to build a new store in Shankill. It will be part of a neighbourhood centre development, which will also include a Crèche, Medical Centre and cafe.
The six-month project will create fifty construction jobs and thirty full-time positions once the store opens.
Lidl Ireland Property Director, Alan Barry, said the company has "taken on board many of the suggestions from the local residents including the use of stone walls, retaining in so far as is possible existing trees, additional landscaping and the inclusion of enhanced pedestrian access."
"We were somewhat restricted regarding some feedback on the roof design and multi-use nature of the site as we have to first and foremost comply with the Retail Planning Guidelines and the specific zoning of the site", he explained.
