Lidl Ireland has welcomed the decision from An Board Pleánala in relation to its development in Lusk, Co. Dublin. The site sits in a prime location in the newly developed Lusk Village Quarter which will also contain multiple shops, cafés, a creche, public square, playground and 150 new family homes.
The retailer’s proposed plans have seen significant support from local residents since submission, and with hopes to support the local community amid much economic uncertainty, Lidl’s development in Lusk will see more than €11 million investment into the local area as well as the creation of 35 permanent new jobs and support 100 more indirectly over the course of the construction period.
The design of the planned store has been tailored to keep in line with existing surrounding businesses on the site. The store will also incorporate a range of sustainability features including a certified Energy Management System, high preforming energy efficient technologies, on site electric vehicle charger spaces and the installation of highly efficient solar panels. It will also offer the retailer’s growing customer base a superior shopping experience with a spacious interior layout, high ceilings and wide aisles creating a comfortable shopping experience for customers.
“We have been blown away by the local community support for this store and we are looking forward to welcoming our new customers in Autumn 2021,” said Kevin Duffy, regional portfolio & facilities executive, Lidl Ireland.
