Calls for more uniform planning for large retail outlets

Listowel Town Councillors need to ensure there`s more uniform planning when considering planning applications from large retail outlets according to a business owner. Gerard Greany says he believes the arrival of Lidl is positive and will bring more commercial traffic into listowel. However he doesn`t agree with their location on the outskirts of the town. Lidl are opening today on the John B Keane road. Gerard Greany says any future applications from large retail chains should be kept in the centre of the town to ensure business does not leave the town centre.
