Local people in Camelon are being encouraged to attend a public exhibition on plans for the first Aldi store in Falkirk.
Aldi has submitted a planning application to redevelop the former Johnston Press buildings off Glasgow Road and Redbrae Road in Camelon, and the proposal will be on show at a public exhibition at Falkirk Indoor Bowling Club, Camelon on Monday 18th June between 3pm and 8pm.
If the planning application is successful, the Aldi development will reinvigorate the currently disused site, creating around 20 new jobs and helping boost local business.
Graham Nicolson, Property Director for Aldi in Scotland, said: “We are keen to open a new food store in the Falkirk area and believe the site at Camelon is a perfect opportunity for us to do this while regenerating a derelict site, bringing it back into economic use.
We are only at the planning stages of our proposal and we need the support of local people if they would like to see an Aldi in the local area. I would encourage people to come along and view our proposals, meet the project team and register their support, if they would like to. We are keen to hear what local people have to say about the proposals.”
Community groups and elected representatives are also invited to view the plans and discuss the proposal with representatives of Aldi and the development team.
Approximately half of the former Johnston Press building site has been earmarked for the development of an Aldi store with 141 associated car parking spaces. The remaining area of the site would be marketed by Aldi, on completion of the store, for further development to complement the store, the town and surrounding areas.
If people have any questions or would like to register their support for a new store in Camelon, they should call the freephone information line on 0800 088 4322.
