LIDL – purchase of land

I am pleased to confirm that the Council have rejected a request from LIDL to purchase a strip of housing account land at Ferniehill.

LIDL were proposing to extend the car park of their Gilmerton store, however this would have impacted upon the amenity of nearby residents.

I am pleased to have supported and assisted a very active residents’ campaign to ensure the Council did not sell this land.

I am pleased to have been able to help in formally voicing my objection to the proposal. I am glad common sense has prevailed.
