Lidl applied to Croydon council for planning permission to turn the former car show room on Beulah Hill into a Lidl store. But the application was turned down on 6th February . Croydon wanted the building to be smaller and fit in better with the Norwood Grove Conservation Area. There are other concerns about the lack of detail on managing traffic using the car park entrance on Crown Lane.
Lidl may appeal agains the Croydon decision or re-apply with new plans. For details of the scheme quote ref 13/03146/P at http://planning.croydon.gov.uk/DCWebPages/AcolNetCGI.gov?ACTION=UNWRAP&RIPNAME=Root.PgeResultDetail&TheSystemkey=137755
