The developers behind a new Burntwood supermarket have released an updated image of what the new store will look like.

The Aldi development will be on the corner of Bridge Cross Road and Milestone Way.

And the supermarket chain have released an image of what the store could look like – as well as a new aerial view showing the proposed layout and parking facilities.

The scheme has been revised since it was initially granted planning permission to redevelop the site of the Bridge Cross Working Mens Club in August 2011. Alterations have been made to the access and their is a proposal to improve pedestrian crossing facilities on Milestone Way.

A spokesperson explained: “We received an encouraging response from the local community regarding our initial planning application, with 75 percent of responses we received from residents welcoming a new facility to the area in principle.

“However, following a review of the consented proposals we are keen, as part of the new store, to deliver a new signalised crossing on Milestone Way and a more comprehensive access solution.

“Although the wider proposals will remain unchanged, we must submit a new planning application to be considered by the district council which incorporates the highway changes.”

The new store is expected to create around 25 full and part-time jobs.

A full explanation of the revised plan for the Aldi supermarket are set to go on display at St John’s Community Church, Chase Terrace, Burntwood, between 3pm and 7pm on January 26.

“I would like to encourage the local community to come along and view our amended proposals and meet the project team,” the spokesperson added. “We are keen to hear what local people have to say about the revised highway proposals.

“If people have any questions in the meantime they should call our freephone information line number on 0800 298 7040.”
