Aldi approved in Burnley

HOW Planning has secured planning permission for a new Aldi supermarket on Todmorden Road in Burnley, the firm’s 25th new foodstore for Aldi in just under three years acting for the retailer.

The scheme will see the construction of a 19,100 sq ft discount foodstore on an underutilised site to the South East of the town centre. It will be served by 90 car parking spaces and will provide soft and hard landscaping as well as local public realm improvements.

The permission follows HOW’s recent success in securing planning permission for a 19,000 sq ft Aldi foodstore and five flexible-use retail units totalling 25,910 sq ft in Breightmet, Bolton.

Dan Brown, associate at HOW Planning, said: “It is great to have secured permission having worked hard to convince the local authority of the merits of our planning case and look forward to seeing this important site being redeveloped. There are significant benefits to the wider economy with the proposals delivering a range of new jobs and providing enhanced choice for local consumers.”

The architect on the scheme was The Harris Partnership while Cameron Rose Associates acted as transport consultant. Lamb & Swift is the commercial agent.
