Revised Aldi Store approved

The revised application for a slightly longer and thinner store moved right up to the Crow Lane boundary and a  larger car park was approved by the Development Control (North) Committee on 14th April 2010.

The chair person of the committee heavily criticised Aldi for declining to install any public recycling facilities with the new store despite a considerable increase in car parking area. Aldi’s reason was that such areas could be unsightly and there was an existing facility in Machin Rd. (This latter is 4 minutes walk away)

The removal of two further mature trees ( one pictured below) will be compensated by planting a further 4 trees on the site making a total of 14 new trees along the site frontage.

No solar or thermal power generating facilities will be installed on the new building because ” it would not benefit the proposal and would not be possible to integrate it with the building design”.

Aldi will pay £15000 towards the cost of a new traffic island and a right-turn lane for traffic coming from the east. And they will also contribute £12000 towards the cost of  a 4 day a week bus service operated by Lawrence Weston Community Transport which will connect outlying areas of Henbury and Brentry to the shopping area
