Offaly County Council has sought further information before making a decision on whether or not to grant planning permission for a second Lidl store in Tullamore.

Permission is being sought by the retailer to construct the second store on Church Road in the town.

The company describes the proposed development as a new state of the art, modern retail store located between Church Road and Tanyard Lane. The store will incorporate a retail floor area of 1,670 sq. m. and will include a bakery.
