How to Support Us

If you are keen to see a new neighbourhood food store on the land at the corner of Naas Lane and Newhaven Road, Kingsway, please show your support for the application in the following ways:

  1. Visit: Our petition site and sign our online petition
  2. Write a support letter or send a support email and send copies to and/or telephone your local Councillors.

The online petition will demonstrate the overall level of support for the new Lidl store. However, personal letters/emails/phone calls of support will carry significantly more weight. To give the Lidl application the best chance of success, please help by voicing your support.

Letters or emails need not be long but should concentrate on ‘planning issues’ to be the most effective. Example ‘planning issues’ are outlined on the Reasons to Support Us page.

Please write to Lidl and (if possible) send copies to and/or telephone your local Councillors (addresses and contact details can be found via the Councillor Contacts link.

  • Property Department, Lidl UK Regional Distribution Centre, Central Park, Severn Beach, Bristol, BS35 4DF. The letter heading should read: “Proposed Lidl Store at Kingsway, Gloucester”.
  • Email us at and (if possible) copy in (cc) and/or telephone your Ward Councillors. The subject should be “Proposed Lidl Store at Kingsway, Gloucester”.
