This is when Newton Abbot's new Aldi will open


Newton Abbot’s will Aldi will open in Autumn 2018 after the multi-million pound plans for the superstore were finally approved.
Teignbridge District Council gave the green light for a new store at Brunel Road Industrial Estate – subject to a revised acceptable design being received back in June.
The budget supermarket giant’s application also included outline plans for additional land to be developed for small business units, which will be handed over free of charge to Teignbridge District Council, and around 50 new jobs will be created when the Aldi store opens.

The proposed outlet would comprise a 1,140 sq m (net) foodstore with 99 car parking spaces, as well as small units for employment.
An ALDI spokesperson confirmed: “We are pleased that the plans are progressing and hope local people will be able to enjoy shopping in ALDI Newton Abbot in Autumn 2018.”
A report by council planners, approving the scheme said: “Following the application being heard and determined by the full Planning Committee, discussions took place with the Agent and the Applicant’s Architect to revisit the design of the building.

“Officers were keen that the pleasing architectural detailing on the current red-brick building be incorporated as far as practicably possible into the two side elevations of the building. Revised plans have been received which seek to replicate the brick detailing, the bays and the current pleasing arched windows.

“It is considered that this delivers a quality development which pays due to respect to the heritage connections associated with this site and the wider railway.”
Planners approved the Aldi scheme by 10 votes to six in June, but only after a vote to refuse the scheme ended in an 8-8 tie.

Final planning approval was deferred until an acceptable design for the store was received as there were concerns over the loss of the railway heritage buildings, but planners have now received an acceptable design.
