Planning permission for a new Aldi store on the outskirts of Horncastle in Lincolnshire has been withdrawn after a High Court judge ruled that East Lindsey District Council failed to consider separate plans for a Lidl store in its decision.

Lidl launched a High Court challenge after the council approved Aldi’s store plans without evaluating Lidl’s competing proposal.

The planning dispute began when Aldi and Lidl applied for planning permission for stores on different parcels of land outside Horncastle’s centre in March 2022 and April 2022.

Planning officers had indicated in a July meeting with Lidl’s representatives that the council intended to consider both applications together.
