Proposals for a new Aldi food store, drive-thru and electric vehicle charging station – land off Welsh Road, Airfields


Aldi, the award-winning discount food retailer, is bringing forward proposals to open a new, high-quality food store on land off Welsh Road, Deeside.

The scheme would provide an attractive, modern Aldi food store, a drive-thru restaurant and electric vehicle charging station in a convenient and accessible location.

Aldi’s proposals would transform the site providing an attractive, modern discount food store in an accessible location for the residents of Deeside, improving consumer choice and enhancing customer experience. Our store could also create up to 40 full-time equivalent jobs for local people.

In addition to the new Aldi food store, permission is being sought for a drive-thru restaurant along with an electric vehicle charging station providing 18 spaces. These proposals aim to enhance the local area by providing essential services and amenities while also contributing to economic growth and sustainability. The development would not only represent a multi-million-pound investment in this part of Airfields but would also bring associated benefits such as new, local employment opportunities and additional supply chain opportunities.
