« BackLidl appeals conditions of planning permission for Tralee store

A German discount store has appealed conditions of planning permission it secured on a second store in Tralee.


Lidl has brought the case to An Bord Pleanala.

Lidl is hoping to build its second outlet in Tralee on the long vacant site which was formerly home to Heiton Buckley on Edward Street, McCowan’s Lane and Daly’s Lane.

The works involve the demolition of four light industrial or commercial buildings and associated structures totaling over 4,800 square metres and the construction of a licensed discount foodstore.

The outlet will be almost 2,800 square metres over two floors and have 131 car parking spaces and 27 spaces for bicycles.

Last month Kerry County Council granted Lidl planning permission for the development subject to 18 conditions including contributions to the local authority towards works in Tralee town.

Lidl has appealed one or more of these conditions to An Bord Pleanala which is due to rule on the case by September 28th.
