Great news that Aldi has been rejected planning permission for their plans at the Old Horns. This from fiends at Birmingham LIVE – LINK
The planning inspector has rejected it based not he damage to the trees on site. However I am concerned they passed it on the traffic and pollution grounds. Stand there on any time and count the numbers fo cars then think if there is an increase. Aldi’s claim is that they would take traffic from ASDA to compensate, I do not believe them !!
Declare Interest – we shop at Aldi at the Scotts.
So is this the end ? Well Aldi for some reason seem desperate for that site, when there are sites in Kingstanding and Perry Barr they could use, so we will see.
