Proposals for a new Aldi store and employment scheme in Ruthin

Aldi, the award-winning discount food retailer, is preparing plans to open a new, high-quality food store and an employment unit on land off the A525 (Lon Gwernydd) in Ruthin.

The scheme would provide an attractive, modern Aldi food store in a convenient and accessible location north of Ruthin town centre, transforming this allocated development site. The scheme will also deliver a new access road, a new 653m2 employment unit and outline permission for further 4,870m2 of units.

Overall, the proposals will be part of a “hybrid application” which will see Aldi seek full planning permission for the food store, one employment unit and an access road into the estate, as well as outline planning permission for the remainder of the site to be developed into further employment units. A detailed proposal for these additional employment units would be submitted as a “Reserved Matters” application at a later stage.

As part of the statutory consultation process, Aldi triggered the 28-day pre-application consultation period on Friday 26 April 2019 for this site.

You can read detailed information about the proposals as well as the draft planning documents on the Documents and Downloads section.

Aldi will submit the planning application to Denbighshire County Council in June 2019. We look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback on our proposals.
