New store will mean 40 jobs

Contractors working for supermarket chain Aldi felled a 200-year-old lime tree today (26 August 2014) despite protests and representations up to the last minute from environmental campaigners led by the Ecology Building Society. Half the tree's branches overhung the grounds of the society's headquarters in Silsden, West Yorkshire. The 98ft high tree was felled by the low cost food chain as they prepared to build a new store.'Picture shows Aldi store building site entrance.

Supermarket chain Aldi is proposing to open a new store in Stapleford.

The proposal represents a multi-million-pound investment that will deliver up to 40 new jobs and increase choice for local residents when shopping for food.

In addition to a new food store, Aldi’s proposal includes a plot og approximately 2,800 square metres of land at the corner of this site for potential residential development.

It is proposed that any new homes on this portion of the site would have a separate access to the food store, off Pinfold Lane.

Before the application is submitted, more than 3,400 residents and businesses were invited to a public exhibition on Wednesday at The Meeting Place, Nottingham Road.

Chairman of Stapleford Community Group and Stapleford councillor Richard MacRae is pleased that the plans will create up to 40 new jobs and said it will be a great boost for the town.
