Aldi submits detailed plans for store rebuild in Prenton

ALDI has now submitted full plans to redevelop one of its Wirral stores as part of a multi-million pound investment.

If approved, the supermarket giant's branch off Woodchurch Road in Prenton would be demolished and a more modern one built in its place.

The plans, which will be considered by the council on a date to be arranged, include the creation of new entrances created off Woodchurch Road and Duck Pond Lane into the site and an extended car park. Car parking spaces would stand at 125, an increase of 35 on the current site.

In addition, 10 full-time and part-time jobs created in store and further job opportunities via construction and the supply chain.

A spokesperson for Aldi said The proposals were put to public consultation in March, with a good level of support.

George Brown, regional property director for Aldi, said: "We're delighted with the level of support for our proposal to rebuild in Prenton.

"I would like to thank those residents and stakeholders who provided us with their feedback.

"If passed, our proposal would deliver an upgraded shopping experience for local residents in Prenton with wider aisles and a more customer-friendly product display.

"The current building is over 50 years old and is no longer fit for purpose.

"The scheme would also improve accessibility into the site, with new entrances created off Woodchurch Road and Duck Pond Lane, and would create around 10 new permanent roles for local people."

The planning application can be viewed at the council's website. The application reference number is APP/20/00437.
