Objection to Lidl Planning Application

There has been a planning application put forward to replace PSL Bowling and Fitness First with a Lidl.

Reasons we are against this:
– Both are excellent assets to Stirchley for all
– The traffic is already terrible on that junction, and it would only get worse
– There is a proposed Tesco minutes down the road
– Lidl would be welcomed on derelict land elsewhere

PSL Bowling are a tremendous support to the Stirchley Community Market, especially when we without a home last year / the first part of this year and they offered us their car park free of charge – the market would not have survived without them! We will be devastated if the building is replaced with a supermarket.

  1. Why does Stirchley need yet another supermarket? How many supermarkets do people in this area need? Surely, as someone else mentioned, what people really need is more social meeting places. This is a far more important need– and a worthy one— for the community.

    Who is making this decision?

    In what is supposed to be a democratic country, should it not be the case, that the local people must make this decision and not the bureaucrats and get-rich-quick-brigade?

    Doesn’t any one care anymore about what ordinary people want – or at least let them have their views be heard and taken on board in all decision making that affects them?
