Plans to build a new food shop on a derelict estate site have been given the go-ahead by Broxtowe Borough Council’s planning committee.
Aldi proposed to provide a new food store on the Pinfold Trading Estate in Nottingham Road, which was unanimously approved by members.
The multi-million pound investment for Stapleford is set to transform the empty site and bring it back into productive use.
Up to 40 permanent jobs will be created as well as additional employment through construction and supply chain opportunities.
As part of the proposal, Aldi will be providing around 2,800m2 of land and infrastructure for potential residential development in the future.
An Aldi Spokesperson said:
“We’re delighted that our plans have been approved and would like to thank the local community for their continued support, it really has made a difference. We’d also like to thank members of the Development Control Committee for recognising the strength of community backing for the proposed store, in voting to overturn the officer’s recommendation.
“Our final proposal evolved through months of consultation with council officers and local residents and has been carefully designed to create an attractive entrance to the town from Nottingham Road.”
“Many residents told us that they currently travel to our existing stores in Long Eaton and Ilkeston. We’re excited to extend our offering to these customers a little closer to home and in turn improve footfall in the town.”
