Stapleford Aldi Store Update By Councillor Richard MacRae.
Having received lots of emails/calls from people regarding the Stapleford Aldi Store I contacted them directly.
Please find below the response I have just recover when I asked my contact if there was any news on an opening date.
Dear Cllr MacRae,
Thank you again for your continued interest in the Stapleford store. This is how things stand. The Planning Committee added a condition when the store was approved to the effect
that the store cannot open until the housing adjacent development has been completed.
Aldi is therefore not able to progress the design or construction of the store further until the housing land has been sold to a developer, who has secured detailed planning
permission and developed the houses. Aldi is currently in discussions in an attempt to sell that land, but I am sure that you will understand that, at the moment, that condition imposed by the Committee is holding up the development.
I hope that makes sense.
