SUPERMARKET firm Lidl looks all set to get planning consent from Hart for a food store on the former Brian Gubby site in London Road, Blackwater.

Hart's Development Control Committee adjourned the application for a month last week, but members indicated that they favoured the proposal. The delay is to sort out a number of details such as whether Lidl will be asked to hand over cash towards CCTV coverage of Blackwater town centre and the final alignment of the road junction. Hampshire has indicated that it is satisfied with the highway solution.
