Great news today from Neil Elkjes at the Birmingham CC planning meeting.
By a unanimous vote of 11-0 the planning application for ALDI has been rejected.
It is nonsense to suggest the roads around the Old Horns can cope with another supermarket and especially has ALDI has a high turnover of cars.
Even at so called quiet times the Island can get slowed up and the quality of life for residents is decreased. As mentioned before we have an Aldi at the Scott’s and Beggars Bush to use (we use the Scott’s) and that is more than enough.
However I suspect Aldi will come back again 😦
