Supermarket chain seeks public’s view on plans for Cheshire site

Plans for Aldi Congleton store

Supermarket chain Aldi has proposed plans to develop a new, food store on land off Viking Way in Congleton.

The site being proposed is a component of a larger residential and employment-led masterplan for northern Congleton that has already obtained outline planning permission for uses including a foodstore.

Aldi’s proposal site is a part of the fourth phase of this development, and will be submitted along with a drive thru and a retail terrace, to create a new local centre.

In line with the outline permission, Aldi’s proposals would transform the site into an attractive, modern discount food store in an accessible location for Congleton residents, improving consumer choice and enhancing customer experience.

Bespoke, high quality landscaping throughout the site will complement its setting within Congleton.

As part of its commitment to community consultation, Aldi will display its vision for the redevelopment of the site at htp://, where an online feedback form is also available.

The virtual consultation will be held from May 12 until Friday, May 26, and visitors to the website will be able to leave their feedback on the proposals.

Bryn Richards, Aldi’s regional property director, said: “Aldi is excited to bring its award winning range of low cost products and industry-leading rate of pay to Congleton and looks forward to working with the local community to make this proposal a reality.”

“We encourage all local residents to visit our virtual exhibition and let us know their thoughts on our plans.”

Aldi’s proposals represent a multimillion-pound investment into Congleton’s local economy and would create 40 jobs, paid at a rate of £11.90. Additional job opportunities would be available throughout construction and across the supply chain.

In addition to atending the event or visiting the project website, people can find out more information and provide their feedback by calling the Freephone information number 0800 298 7040 or emailing
