Discount grocery retailers Aldi have submitted a planning application for a proposed store in Rednal.
The site sits next to Longbridge McDonalds on Bristol Road South and is a piece of currently derelict land which falls within the area of the Longbridge Area Action Plan, the plan set out for the regeneration of the area.
The plans are for a 1254sqm store with car park.
Aldi originally consulted local residents in September 2015 about the possibility of a store on the site.
At that time, a spokesperson for the company said: “We are excited about the prospect of a new store for residents in Rednal. The proposal would deliver investment and create much-needed jobs for the local area.”
There is already an existing Aldi store 2 miles away in Northfield and Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Tesco and Farmfoods, as well as Marks and Spencer, all have stores within a mile of the proposed Aldi site. Morrisons is currently undergoing a major refit.
