How to Support Us

If you are keen to see a new Lidl food store in Erith, please show your support for the proposed Lidl application in 3 ways:

  1. Visit: our petition site and sign our online petition.
  2. Write a support letter or send a support email, and send copies to and/or telephone your local Councillors. The online petition will demonstrate the overall level of support for the Lidl application. However, personal letters/emails/phone calls of support will carry significantly more weight. To give the Lidl application the best chance of success, please help us by voicing your support
  3. Submit a formal support comment directly to the Bexley’s planning website by following this link to the Lidl application.

Letters or emails need not be long, but should concentrate on ‘planning issues’ to be the most effective. Example ‘planning issues’ are outlined on the Reasons To Support Us page

Please write to us and (if possible) send copies to and/or telephone your local Councillors (addresses and contact details can be found via the Councillor Contacts link):

  1. Planning Department, London Borough of Bexley. c/o Lidl London North East Property Office, 1st floor, 807-826 Longbridge Road, Dagenham, RM8 2DB. The letter heading should read: ‘Proposed Lidl Foodstore – Atlas Trade Park, Fraser Road, Erith, DA8 1QS’.
  2. Email us at forlidlerith@lidl.co.uk and (if possible) cc and/or telephone your local Councillors. The subject should be ‘Proposed Lidl Foodstore, Atlas Trade Park, Fraser Road, Erith, DA8 1QS’.

If you do not support our draft proposals you can e-mail us at againstlidlerith@lidl.co.uk with any comments that you wish to make.
