Around 51 parking spaces - three of which will be disabled spaces - would be created along with up to 40 new jobs. For more on the new store click here: REVEALED: Plans for new Lidl store in Horsham

The application has been recommended for approval and is set to be discussed by councillors next Tuesday (October 2) at Horsham District Council’s Planning Committee North.

In the plans Lidl is proposing to demolish both units on the site and replace them with a modern store and car park.

The supermarket will host a 1,000m² sales area in a ‘modern high quality building’ and will have a fully glazed shop front facing onto the Horsham Gates roundabout.

Twenty letters supporting the proposals have been received by the council whilst 10 people along with Waitrose have objected.
