Clitheroe residents feedback on plans for new Aldi
3:13pm Tuesday 8th October 2013 in News
CLITHEROE residents have been having their say on plans for a new supermarket in the town.
Aldi, which is developing the project alongside Rawdon Properties, is now set to submit a formal planning application to build a 11,000ft2 store on the old Barker’s Nursery site in Whalley Road.
The plans will also include 95 parking spaces and Aldi said the store would create up to 50 new jobs for local residents.
The town already has four supermarkets – Tesco in Duck Street; Sainsbury’s, Moor Lane; Lidl, Shawbridge Street; and Booths in Station Road.
At a public consultation meeting last week, 66 per cent of the 114 who attended said that they approved or partially approved of the development.
Twenty per cent of residents said that they were opposed to the plan.
Richard Wilshaw, of How Planning, which is acting as agents for the supermarket chain, said: “We believe that we have enough public support to now go forward with the plans.
“We are hoping to get an application formally submitted by the end of October or at the start of November.”
