HOLME Valley villagers are set to get their say on another supermarket plan.
German supermarket firm Lidl revealed last September that it hoped to build a 1,000-square metre store near Holmfirth.
The retailer has earmarked the Riverholme Works site currently occupied by Sicame Electrical Developments on Huddersfield Road.
The electrical company plans to move its manufacturing work to a site on Leeds Road in Huddersfield.
Lidl says its new supermarket will be a “community foodstore” and it will create between 20 and 25 full and part-time jobs.
Plans lodged with Kirklees Council show it will have 65 parking spaces and the external walls will be finished with a stone facade to reflect the architecture of the surrounding area.
There will also be a community noticeboard installed in the car park.
Lidl chiefs claim they posted leaflets to 15,000 local residents and at an open day in September offered food tasters to people who came to look at the plans.
In its application with Kirklees planners it says it received 1,047 individual responses to feedback forms of which 838 were ‘positive’.
The firm says this means 80% of respondents are in favour of the proposed Lidl Food store.
A comments book at the open day also attracted 183 supportive comments and 31 non-supportive comments.
