Work under way on new Chineham Lidl store

Basingstoke Gazette: Demolition work on site Demolition work on site

WORK has begun to build a new supermarket on the edge of Basingstoke.

Diggers have been demolishing buildings off the A33 in Chineham where the new Lidl store will be built.

The store will be 1,458sqm and will replace a unit on the site which used to be an office.

As previously reported in The Gazette, Centurion Properties and Scottish Widows Invest-ment Partnership has been granted outline planning permission to convert two units, Impact and Isis House, from offices into retail units.

The second, larger unit, which is in excess of 2,000sqm, will be occupied by Dunelm Mill, which sells homeware products including curtains and cushions and has 127 stores in the UK.

I wonder why the Gazette appears to be so fascinated by this subject. Surely we've all seen enough demolition in the town to last all of us more than a lifetime, and the news potential of a Lidl store coming to town is, I would think, very low - perhaps I'm mistaken and there is a large group of Gazette readers/viewers who also find this subject fascinating....

I couldn't agree more i moved to basingstoke in 1974 and demolition and building work have been going on non stop ever since.
One day the town and it's half completed road system will eventually be finished.

I assume it's a reference to the ring road, which was supposed to be dual carriageway all the way round, with proper junctions instead of roundabouts.
