Thank you for visiting Sainsbury's Lydney website. We are disappointed that members of the planning committee have chosen to refuse the application. We are currently reviewing our options and will update our supporters once a decision has been made.
Sainsbury’s has been developing its proposal for a store in close consultation with people in and around Lydney since July 2012. During this time we have received a great deal of feedback and have incorporated this where possible, making a number of changes to the proposal as a result.
A new store will benefit the local area by providing up to 180 new full and part time job opportunities and increasing choice in main food shopping locally. A Sainsbury’s in Lydney will also reduce the need to travel outside the town to supermarkets such as those in Chepstow or Gloucester.
