The application for Planning Permission to build an ALDI superstore on the site currently occupied by HPL Motors on Bury New Road comes to Planning Committee this Tuesday 13 November 2012.
The recommendation from the Council’s Planning Officers is to ‘Approve’, but the final decision will be up to the councillors who sit on the Planning Committee.
I know many people have said they would welcome an Aldi – particularly from a price point of view, but personally I remain to be convinced that this is the right thing for Prestwich, and remain worried what this would mean to both traffic on Bury New Road, and also the chances of having any meaningful re-development on the Longfield site.
Here is the brief for Planning Committee produced by Aldi.
The meeting is at 7pm at the Town Hall – I’ll let you know what the decision is.
