PLANS have been submitted for a new Aldi store in Rednal which could create up to 40 jobs.
The discount grocery retailer submitted the proposals to Birmingham City Council for a store on vacant land next to McDonalds on Bristol Road South.
The 1,254sqm shop will also have a car park suitable for 81 cars, as well as a regional training centre for Aldi staff.
Approximately 26 construction jobs are set to be created and 40 permanent full and part time jobs at the training centre and food store.
Aldi originally consulted local residents in September 2015 about the possibility of a store on the site.
The site is located within the Longbridge Regional Investment Site, as identified within Birmingham City Council’s Longbridge Area Action Plan.
On the store’s consultation website, it states: “Aldi is confident that its proposals for this site would positively contribute towards regeneration in the wider area and in line with the vision for the Regional Investment Site as outlined in the Longbridge Area Action Plan.”
There is already an existing Aldi store two miles away in Northfield, as well as Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Tesco and Farmfoods and Marks and Spencer.
