DISCOUNT retailer Lidl is planning to build a second store in Huddersfield - on the site of an existing retail outlet.
German-owned Lidl has submitted plans for a foodstore and car park on the site of the GlynWebb home improvements store at Wakefield Road, Aspley.
The GlynWebb store would be demolished to make way for the new outlet.
Reports submitted with the plans said Lidl would create 20 jobs at the new store. The plan includes parking for 108 vehicles, with access from Mulberry Street.
The new building, to be finished in replica stone and slate, would include a warehouse area and offices.
The reports said the design of the store would represent a big improvement on the existing GlynWebb store - which was recently named in The Examiner as one of the town's 10 worst buildings.
Lidl's submission said the store would complement existing retailing in Aspley.
The plans will come before Kirklees councillors this summer.
Lidl already has a Huddersfield store on Castlegate, opposite the police headquarters.
It is understood that GlynWebb will be seeking another site in the town.
A Lidl spokeswoman in London said it was policy not to comment on planning matters.
A spokeswoman for Manchester- based GlynWebb said: "We cannot comment at this stage, other than to say that we are committed to the Huddersfield area.
"We will be staying in the area and there will be no risk to employees' jobs."
