Lidl have identified a site in Low Lane, Horsforth (right).

"They had planned a public consultation event but for obvious reasons they aren’t able to hold that at this time.

"Residents close to the site will receive a leaflet from them over the coming days."

Consultation documents show Lidl bought the site in 2019.

They also propose a car park with 121 places

A planning application has not yet been submitted to Leeds City Council.
