A discount food retailer has confirmed that it is consulting over proposals to build a store in Cheadle.

Aldi has launched a community consultation on plans for a new store in Cheadle.

The plans, if passed by Staffordshire moorlands District Council, would see the redevelopment of land off The Green in Cheadle, with a new, attractive, modern food store.

The site is currently occupied by the manufacturer IAE who are, reportedly, relocating to other premises.

A spokesman for Aldi said: “Currently there is a lack of discount food store options for local residents, leaving customers no choice but to travel further afield for their weekly shopping.

Aldi’s proposals represent a multi-million-pound investment and will cut down travel times, helping to keep spending within the local economy.

The new store would have a net sales area of 1,315m2, with 135 car parking spaces including, dedicated accessible and parent and child bays, as well as electric vehicle charging points.”

Aldi is inviting local residents to view the plans and provide their feedback via its virtual exhibition on the dedicated project website www.aldiconsultation.co.uk/cheadlestaffordshire.

The consultation will run from today (Wednesday, March 16) until Wednesday, March 23.

Aldi’s Regional Property Director, Richard Thompson, added: “We’ve been looking to deliver a new store in Cheadle for some time and are delighted to be launching our consultation.

The plans to redevelop the site will improve local choice and enable IAE to relocate to alternative premises.

Before we submit a planning application, we want to hear the views of the local community and I’d encourage people to visit the project website and complete our online feedback form.”

If approved, the proposal would create up to 40 new full and part-time jobs at the Aldi store alone, which will be paid at a rate of £10.10 per hour as a minimum, according to the retailer.

Further employment opportunities would be supported during construction of the new store and through the supply chain.

As well as visiting the project website, people can also provide their feedback by contacting the project team on Freephone 0800 298 7040 or emailing feedback@consultation-online.co.uk.
