How to Support Us
If you are keen to see a Lidl in Portland, please show your support for the application in 3 ways:
- Visit: our petition site and sign our online petition
- Write a support letter or send a support email, and send copies to and/or telephone your local Councillors.
- Submit a formal support comment directly to the Weymouth & Portland Borough Council planning website by following this link to the Lidl application.
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.
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).
Write to use at Lidl Portland, Property Department, Lidl Distribution Centre, Chillpark Brake, Clyst Honiton, Exeter, Devon, EX5 2FU. The letter heading should read: ‘Proposed Lidl Store at Weymouth’.
Email us at email@example.com and (if possible) copy in (cc) and/or telephone your Ward Councillors. The subject should be “Proposed Lidl Foodstore –Portland”.
