Can the local authorities please stipulate that Aldi only gets planning permission on the proviso it ‘greens’ the store footprint to the same standard of its new sites throughout countries like Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands etc. Every Aldi site I pass has the same tree-less, bland, uninspiring frontage imaginable. I don’t only blame Aldi, why on earth don’t our councils not demand an aspect of landscaping as part of new-build for the benefit of the community and the enhancement of the area, instead of giving wealthy brands like Aldi carte blanche to put up lifeless, dull buildings. This country is years behind the continent in this respect… you see much higher quality design and environmental consideration over there!

Aldi is a very good cheap as chips supermarket. We need more of these stores.
