PLANS for a new Lidl supermarket in Warwick have been rejected over increased traffic concerns.
The German supermarket chain submitted plans for a new store on Emscote Road on the site of the former Homebase store.
The proposal included demolishing the old building.
But a number of residents complained about the proposal fearing it would add to congestion on the already traffic-choked main route between Warwick and Leamington.
Lidl has a store on the Myton Road in Leamington.
Warwick District Council plans committee refused the applications last night.
