Why Support Us?

We will be submitting the planning application to Canterbury City Council following our Public Consultation event on Thursday 5th October once we have allowed time to take into account any views/requests from those who attend.

As part of the application process Planning Officers will liaise with relevant consultees in order to decide whether the new Lidl store should be built.

As with all developments, there will be people who are for and people against the development and it is very important that you have your say. If you are in support of our application to redevelop the site, it is vital that you make your views known to your local Ward Councillor.

Please visit our Reasons to Support Us page to find out more information about how Lidl’s new store and the creation of up to 40 new jobs will benefit Herne Bay.

If you wish to leave feedback on any of the above please visit our How to Support Us page. Letters or emails need not be long but, to be most effective, should ideally be focused on ‘planning issues’ as highlighted on our Reasons to Support Us page.
