New plans are being brought forward for a new Aldi store on land between the Wilford Lane Tram Stop and The Becket Way, north of Wilford Lane.
The multi-million-pound investment would see Aldi open a modern spacious store, create around 40 new full and part time jobs, bring a site that is vacant into a productive use and deliver a range of benefits for the local community.
Aldi and Lateral have launched an online public consultation to showcase their plans ahead of submitting a planning application to Rushcliffe Borough Council.
Commenting on the milestone, Rebecca Rutter, Property Director at Aldi said, “We’ve been looking to secure a new store to serve the western part of West Bridgford for some time and we are extremely excited about the prospect of bringing our fresh, high quality, low price proposition to more customers. The proposals, which make good use of a site in a sustainable location, will provide further choice for shoppers.
“We believe in open consultation so we’re launching a ‘virtual’ public consultation in order to give everyone an opportunity to review our plans. We would encourage residents to provide their questions and comments via the project website”.
Matthew Anderson, Development Director at Lateral, a specialist property advisory and development business said, “Lateral have been working for some time with the current owners of the land Star Pubs & Bars to identify a viable development option given the site’s technical constraints such as its flood risk and proximity to the tram line. Many options have been explored and we are now delighted that Aldi are committed to the site.”
Aldi and Lateral have launched an online consultation to seek local views.
