ALDI has resubmitted its proposals for a store in Llay following talks with Wrexham Council.

The company had originally submitted an application for a new supermarket in July 2019.

But following the council’s failure to determine the application after a prolonged period, Aldi launched an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate.

However, since the lodge of the appeal, both parties have held discussions and Aldi has now resubmitted its proposals for the Gresford Road site.

Wrexham Council is expected to make a decision on whether to approve the plans in December, the company has stated.

The plans submitted include minor adjustments to the scheme, including an extension to the left turn lane to be implemented on Straight Mile as part of the neighbouring residential works, adjustments to the signal timing and the installation of Keep Clear markings on Llay Road and Gresford Road, alongside other small pedestrian connectivity improvements.

The scheme will also create around 40 jobs locally and generate £5 million of investment into the local economy.

Bryn Richards, property director for Aldi, said: “Following positive conversations with the council, I am pleased we are now in a position to resubmit our plans for Llay.

“Aldi never takes a decision to appeal lightly.

"We have a track record of collaborating with councils across Wales and appreciate our good working relationship with Wrexham Council.

"We are therefore pleased we have reached a decision, jointly, that our application, once resubmitted, will be determined this year.

“I’d like to thank all residents for getting in touch and offering support for our proposals.

"We look forward to taking the application to councillors on Wrexham’s Planning Committee and hope that they take in account the positive local feeling for the plans.”
