A shopping centre landlord has vowed to improve the choice for shoppers in Nailsea following the failure of Lidl’s planning application.
Ellandi, which owns Crown Glass Shopping Centre, was keen for the supermarket giant to build a new store on part of the town centre car park in Stock Way South.
The controversial proposal was refused by North Somerset Council last month due to the loss of car parking spaces and road safety concerns.
Mark Robinson, property director of Ellandi, said: “We are disappointed the Lidl proposal has been rejected but still totally committed to improving the choice for shoppers in Nailsea.
“We know the parking and access to the scheme are important to shoppers and this had been incorporated within the newer proposals.
“We will continue to consider these aspects in future plans and hope to reach a solution that will allow us to improve the choice of stores in the town and the amenities for local residents.
“We believe that a vibrant town centre is essential for Nailsea to thrive as a local community and will continue to invest in Crown Glass and collaborate with the town council over improvements to every part of the town centre.

“Ellandi has recently invested in a new play area at the centre of Crown Glass and, through the Win-a-Shop initiative, has attracted more independent retailers to the scheme.
“A new Costa coffee restaurant and refurbished office units have made the centre a better place to eat and work and we are about to roll out a comprehensive package of signs and way-finding which will extend beyond the Crown Glass Centre to incorporate the whole town centre.”
