Lidl Ireland has been refused planning permission for a new store in Claremorris.
The German-owned chain had applied last December for planning permission to construct a discount foodstore and off-licence at Kilcoleman Road in Claremorris.
The development would include a car-park and a vehicular access road to the Kilcoleman road.
Mayo County Council received a number of submissions and objections to the proposed development.
This week, the council has refused permission to Lidl Ireland for the new store.
