Lidl Ireland recently hosted two community information evenings to brief local residents, community leaders and stakeholders on its plans for a mixed use development and new Lidl store on Herberton Road, Dublin 12.

An online meeting took place via Zoom on 3 March and an in-person event took place in Pearse College on 10 March.

Lidl representatives and members of the design team talked to the local community and answered a range of questions on topics such as traffic impact, parking and the sustainability credentials of the project.

The new development is set to include a spacious sales floor, 60 new apartments, as well as other retail spaces for use as potential café and pharmacy.

Lidl said the store will be “built to the highest environmental standards”, and will also have EV charging points, a green roof and solar panels. In a move which the retailer hopes will be welcomed by the community, Lidl added that the development would bring up to €15 million in local investment to the community, as well as creating 60 jobs.

“We are pleased to bring forward and lodge planning for this ambitious project on Herberton Road,” said Vincent Cronolly, regional property director.

“We had a lot of constructive engagement with the local community and are very thankful to them for taking the time to engage with us,” he added. “We do believe that the mixed use aspect of this scheme, with 60 apartments included, makes very good use of the site available. We hope to bring significant local investment, new jobs and our market leading quality and value to the community around Herberton Road for many years to come.”

This development is in line with Lidl’s €550 million expansion plan to take place over the next three years to 2025 and the retailer said it hopes the residential units will form part of the housing solution
