Potential new Lidl store - Trinity Street / Ring Road‏

Proposed Lidl site (Google StreetView)

An important and prominent site in Huddersfield is going to be redeveloped. It is the old hospital / Kirklees College on Trinity Street & New North Road, dubbed Trinity Central.

The site is owned by the Wiggett Construction Group. In the first phase the company wants to demolish the 1970s college buildings near Trinity Street to make way for a Lidl supermarket.

I met three project team members last week. I could see that the proposals were so significant I was keen that our membership should be able to see them and comment before a planning application is submitted.

Huddersfield Civic society members have an exclusive invitation to see the plans for the proposals, at a drop-in session next week. The event will be at the St Patrick’s Catholic Club on Trinity Street, near the bus and rail stations from 6.30pm to 8.00pm on Wednesday, 25 November.

The proposals will be displayed and members of the project team, including planners, architects and representatives from Lidl will be on hand to discuss them.

There will be also be an opportunity for the public to see the proposals at the same place from 2.30pm to 6.30pm on Thursday, November 26.

I hope to see you on the 25th.
