Aldi, the award-winning discount food retailer, is bringing forward proposals to redevelop land at the former Guy Salmon Dealership, Portsmouth Road, Thames Ditton with a new, high-quality, discount food store.

Aldi has long wanted to expand the offer of its amazing value and choice to the residents of Thames Ditton, and the former Guy Salmon showroom at Portsmouth Road is the ideal location.

The scheme would provide an attractive, modern Aldi food store in a convenient and accessible location, alongside new car parking facilities, improving customer choice and reducing travel times.

The proposed store would employ up to 50 local people, with further job opportunities supported via construction and through the supply chain.

The proposals would also see the former office building on site refurbished and regenerated to create a new shop and apartment above.

As part of its commitment to community consultation, Aldi has arranged a virtual public exhibition to provide you with an opportunity to view the draft plans for a new discount food store and give your feedback on the proposals, prior to the submission of a full planning application to Elmbridge Borough Council.
