Town Centre supermarket plans are refreshed

Friday July 12 2019




PLANS to build a new supermarket on the edge of the town centre resurfaced this week.

Retailer Aldi received permission to build a store next to Wickes on Old Mill Lane – on the former National Grid site – more than two years ago.

A planning document is now seeking to alter the proposed building’s layout in order to create an improved pedestrian link to the site’s south-west corner.

The development, which is expected to create 40 new jobs, received overwhelming public support at the time it was announced, with 90 letters sent to the council by residents saying they were in favour.

Comments can be made about the alteration on Barnsley Council’s website until Tuesday.
