Lidl is promoting a proposal for the regeneration of the existing Lidl foodstore at Stanley Terrace, Morpeth.

Lidl is committed to public consultation and we are therefore delighted to be able to provide members of the local community with an overview of the existing development proposal. This website enables you to view the public consultation leaflet, download plans and sign Lidl’s online petition to register your support by clicking on the links provided on the right hand side of the screen.


The proposal seeks the regeneration of the existing Lidl store, former PFS and Sanderson’s car park into a new Lidl foodstore with accompanying car park. The new store will have an extended retail sales area, a dedicated in-store bakery, a new warehouse area and delivery bay. The new store will extend to 2,573 sq. m Gross External Area (GEA), including a net sales area of 1,424 sq. m, resulting in an increase of net sales area of 450 sq. m net compared to the existing store.

The existing vehicular access points to the PFS, existing Lidl and Sanderson’s car park will be closed off from Stanley Terrace and Corporation Yard and a new access will be created for Lidl’s customers and delivery vehicles. The proposal will deliver a reconfigured car park to provide 109 parking spaces, including 7 disabled spaces, and 5 parent and child spaces which are positioned close to the customer entrance located at the north west corner of the store.

Separate staff parking will be retained at the rear of the store to be accessed via New Phoenix Yard. Trolley bays and cycle parking are positioned opposite the store entrance within the customer car park.

It is proposed that the foodstore will be open between the hours of:

  • 7am to 10pm Monday to Saturday; and
  • 10am to 4pm Sunday

Normally there will be 1 HGV delivery to the store per day. All store waste will be collected at the same time as the deliveries, therefore minimising HGV movements within the site.
