Jones Lang LaSalle secures planning permission for three new Aldi superstores

Manchester, July 2013 – The planning and development team at property consultancy Jones Lang LaSalle has secured a hat trick of consents for new Aldi superstores that will see the delivery of more than 44,000 sq ft of new retail space across Chester, Merseyside and Shropshire.

Aldi Store in BoughtonAt the site of a former Focus DIY out of town retail scheme in Boughton, nr Chester, Aldi will anchor a new 26,738 sq ft mixed-use redevelopment after Chester and Cheshire West Councils approved the plans submitted by Jones Lang LaSalle.

The consultants also secured approval for a new 16,361 sq ft Aldi store on Clockface Road, St Helens, on a derelict site which was once occupied by a former Kwik Save.

In Madeley, Shropshire, Jones Lang LaSalle has gained consent for a 15,274 sq ft Aldi store which will anchor a wider mixed use scheme, which will also include a GP clinic and KFC restaurant and is adjacent to a major new housing scheme. 

The firm is appointed to handle planning applications for Aldi’s new stores across the western-side of England from Merseyside down to Shropshire, and encompassing North Wales, Staffordshire and Cheshire.

Joanna Gabrilatsou, associate director from Jones Lang LaSalle, said: “Each of these new stores will be at the heart of their local communities and provide a catalyst to regenerate formerly disused areas of land or abandoned buildings.
“While main areas of retail are struggling, Aldi are delivering new stores in both high street and out of town locations which complement existing local facilities and provide a draw to bring footfall back into neglected areas.”
