Aldi, the award-winning discount food retailer, is proposing to develop a new discount food store at Greendykes Road, Broxburn.

The proposals would see a new, modern food store development to serve Broxburn and improve the range and quality of shopping provision within the local area.  The proposal would introduce a brand-new discount store at Broxburn, reducing the need for customers to travel to other stores to complete their grocery shopping and provide the local community with access to Aldi’s high-quality offer and award-winning low prices.

The proposals would see the delivery of a new, modern foodstore development to serve Broxburn to improve the range and quality of shopping provision within the local area, providing the local community with access to Aldi’s high-quality offer and award-winning low prices. The proposed Aldi store will deliver a 1,315 sq.m net foodstore, with associated parking and high-quality landscaping including a significant number of new trees.

Aldi consulted on the proposals during June 2020, and received over 250 responses from the public, with 97% indicating their support. The project team have now reviewed all comments received and very few issues were raised, which we are confident have been addressed within our planning application.

Following this review, we have now submitted a formal planning application to West Lothian Council for a new Class 1 (retail) discount food store and associated works, which has now been validated by the Council, with reference number 0512/FUL/20. The full application can be viewed at the below link:

There is now an opportunity to make your views known to the Council, who will consider these as part of the determination of the application. This review will be undertaken alongside the feedback received during our consultation. Full details of this feedback, and our response to it, is contained within the submitted Report of Consultation.

We have also taken this opportunity to update our Frequently Asked Questions, which can be viewed here, specifically answering queries raised during our consultation events.

Thank you for your continued interest in this proposed Aldi store at Broxburn.
