Residents have concerns over impact new car park will have on traffic.
Supermarket chain Lidl has submitted a planning application to build a new store between 480 – 482 Ley Street, Ilford.
The supermarket would include a 65 space car park, and take the place of an industrial site containing a number of used car dealerships.
The industrial estate caught fire just over a week ago.
Three people who were living inside Gigi Motors illegally were taken to hospital.
The businesses currently renting the site have until March 9 to move out.
The planning application has divided residents.
Several locals have spoken of their support for the removal of an ‘eyesore’ and believe the supermarket would benefit the area.
However many residents have concerns over the impact a new supermarket would have on the pre-existing traffic problems on Ley Street.
