People in Workington will be given the chance to have their say on plans for a new Lidl supermarket in the town later this month.

The company has announced it will hold a public consultation day at Workington Leisure Centre on Tuesday, June 25 from 2pm to 7pm.

Its property team will be on hand to outline its plans for a new store on New Bridge Road and answer any questions.

Plans for the supermarket were revealed in April.

Lidl has said it plans to plough multi-million-pound investment into the development, which would create up to 40 jobs.

Lidl’s regional head of property, David Murphy, said: “We are extremely excited about the prospect of opening a Lidl in Workington and serving our fresh, quality and incredibly good value produce which shoppers across the country have come to love. We look forward to welcoming anyone along to the public consultation day and showcasing our plans whilst answering any questions.”

The company hopes to submit a planning application in the next month and those who wish to share any feedback on the plans can also comment at

Lidl opened a branch in Maryport in October 2016 and is currently building another store in Cockermouth.
