In February 2015 Croydon council refused a planning application from Lidl to replace the former car showroom at the corner of Beulah Hill and Crown Lane. Croydon said Lidl’s plans were “ detrimental to the visual amenities of the streetscene, by reason of its unacceptable scale, appearance, siting, massing & overall design and insufficient landscaping & boundary treatment”
Lidl has now appealed against Croydon’s decision. You can comment on the appeal before Thursday 26th November by quoting ref 3087239 at the Planning appeal portal: http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/planning/appeals/online/search
