A Lidl supermarket in MiddlesboroughThe German supermarket chain, Lidl, has acquired the site of the former Organ and Dragon inn following the unsuccessful attempt by KFC to turn the former pub into a restaurant with takeaway. The planning inspector upheld the decision by Epsom and Ewell Borough Council not to grant permission to allow the sale of takeaway food because of the adverse impact on the traffic at the busy junction of the A240 and A24.

Lidl have bought the site from KFC and have written to nearby residents offering to purchase their homes, presumably with a view to improving access to the site to address the traffic concerns that scuppered KFC's plans.

Apart from the fact that Lidl plans to demolish the existing building with a view to opening a supermarket on the site, no other details or plans are available.

How do you feel about having a Lidl supermarket on the site? We'd love to hear what you think.
