Ashley Preece from the Great Barr Observer has tweeted this very important story for the area.
This is of course dressed up in much needed jobs but I say NO to this application without any question. We use Aldi at New Oscott or Scott Arms, so why is one needed next to ASDA on what is already a very busy road.
In fact at peak times the island is almost impassable (it does need traffic lights) and to add even more traffic is pure nonsense. I do not have at the moment the application link on the Birmingham Council website.
However I do wonder ?? Remember I published rumours of Asda closing, well this has never been clarified and still they persist. We went down last week and the stock levels in there were appalling, it has got the feel of something happening.
Could it be if Aldi build there, Asda closes, therefore the traffic conditions could get better ?
There is a consultation on the 14th January and I will try and get there and urge residents of Pheasey to be against this stupidity (if Asda stays open).
