Court bans Lidl from constructing access road to its store in Riga

BC, Riga, 13.01.2020.Print version
Administrative District Court has banned German retailer Lidl from constructing an access road to its store on Dzelzavas Street in Riga as the project is presumed to be unlawful, LETA was told at the court.

Environmental activist Janis Matulis told LETA that the court ruling can still be appealed and that the ban is a temporary measure until the final verdict is delivered. 

Matulis said he filed the lawsuit because he believed that the location of the access road to the Lidl store on Dzelzavas Street would contravene Riga city's construction rules and threaten local residents' rights to live in a safe environment. 

Lidl Latvija, originally named MMS Property Solutions, was registered in 2016. The company's share capital is EUR 20.5 mln, its sole owner is CE-Beteiligungs-GmbH, which also owns Lidl Lietuva. The company’s beneficial owner is German national Dieter Josef Schwarz.
