Budget supermarket Lidl is expected to submit an application very soon for a second store in Borehamwood.

Lidl has eyed up a site in York Way, close to Elstree Way, which it wants to knock down and turn into a new food store, alongside another warehouse towards the back.

The new store would create 40 new jobs and have an in-store bakery.

Lidl has proposed 122 parking spaces, including six disabled spaces and eight parent and child spaces, as well storage for ten bikes.

It is proposed that the Lidl food store will be open between the hours of 8am to 10pm Monday to Saturday (including Bank Holidays), and 10am to 4pm or 11am to 5pm Sunday.

Access to the shop would be via a new entrance in Elstree Way while York Way would be used for deliveries and access to a new warehouse.

Lidl say the store will “improve shopping choice” for the people of Borehamwood and a “contemporary” building design would “complement” the surrounding area.

A public exhibition and consultation was held on May 22 at Allum Hall.

The current tenants at Lupa House, Donatantonio, which specialises in importing and distributing of fine quality foods, is due to leave the site as the unit is believed to be no longer fit for their operation.

The Times understands this is not a replacement for Lidl’s existing store in Borehamwood Shopping Park, so there would be two Lidl stores in the town, if the scheme is approved.
