The UK low cost supermarket chain has submitted proposals for its new store that it is hoped will regenerate the area around Mocha Parade in Lower Broughton which was built in the 1970's. If approved by Salford City Council it will become the 14th store within Greater Manchester as the chain expands across the country. Subject to approval, work on the store will start later this year with demolition of the existing building, erection of the store and extensive landscaping, as the area is known to attract wild birds including water-foul. The plans include what is described as a flood basin along with a wild flower meadow which should provide an area for the local wildlife as well as become a focal point in the area. The store will be built upon a flood plain and has seen flooding in recent years but the opening of a new flood basin and wetlands in Kersal has been a huge game-changer for the area as it has provided protection to local homes and businesses. In Feb 2020 the newly opened flood basin was put to the test during the worst of storm Ciara, a test it passed with flying colours. When opened the multi million pound investment will provide around 40 jobs in the local area with a further 40 jobs to be created at another store in Castle Irwell.

Lidl GB will be at the heart of plans to regenerate Mocha Parade in Lower Broughton, it has been announced. The discounter, which is currently the fastest growing supermarket in the UK and has over 790 stores across Great Britain has been signed up as preferred retailer partner by Salford City Council. In recent months a new store has been opened in Winton on the former site of the Brown Cow Pub, which has been positively received by the locals. It is expected that the new store at Mocha will help revitalise the area which has seen a decline over the years. Deputy City Mayor Councillor John Merry said the move will breathe new life into the 1970’s shopping precinct and could see work begin as early as next year. The redevelopment plans also include a new health centre and Councillor Merry said work on that was progressing well.
