Opening of Lidl on Rowan Road

On Thursday the new Lidl on Rowan Road was opened by Siobhain McDonagh MP and for the first time my ward Pollards Hill has a major supermarket that is nearby. Although the Lidl is in the neighbouring ward of Longthornton, it will be popular in the area and the supermarket offer a range of goods at reasonable cost.

While it took only six weeks to erect from start to finish(they work round the clock and it is German efficiency at it's best) the development took many years to happen due to a planning inquiry following the decision of the Government Office for London to call the application in as it varied from Merton Council's UDP. Prior to the development of the site, it was a local eyesore that had been derelict for many years, now the site has been transformed.
