Aldi unveils plans for third Gwynedd store

The discount supermarket is looking to build a nearly 20,000 sq ft store on land off Caernarfon Road in Pwllheli.

Located a half-mile away from the town centre, the 4.8-acre plot is currently greenfield that is being used for animal grazing.

Aldi has launched a consultation for its proposals ahead of submitting its plans to Gwynedd Council. JLL is the planning consultant for the project, which would have 19,400 sq ft of internal space, of which 14,300 sq ft would be the sales area.

Under the plan designed by The Harris Partnership, there would be 113 parking spaces that would include 10 parent and child spaces, eight that would be designated for those with disability and four that would have electric vehicle charging capabilities. There would also be 14 cycle spaces.

If Aldi is successful in its ambitions, the Pwllheli store will be the third in the county.

The project team for the Pwllheli store includes Cameron Rose as transport assessor, SWF Consultant as drainage consultant and Weetwood as flood consequence assessor. Cambrian Ecology is the ecology consultant. ACS Consulting handles the arboricultural report. Spectrum Acoustics is the noise consultant.

Aldi estimates its plans will create 40 jobs in the area.

The consultation runs throughout July and can be viewed at
