A supermarket chain is pressing ahead with its plan to open a multi-million pound store in Melton, which it says would create 40 jobs.

Discount food retailer Aldi has already consulted with the public over its intention to open a store on the site of the former ambulance station in Leicester Road.

A spokesman said that the consultation event, held back in April at Melton Mowbray Baptist Church, was attended by over 115 people. He added that 94 per cent of feedback showed support for the proposal.

Aldi has since been in talks with Melton Borough Council, and expects to submit a planning application shortly.

The Aldi spokesman said: “We are encouraged by the positive response we have received from local residents and stakeholders, who told us that this would be an excellent location for an Aldi store, increasing choice in the local area and making it easier for people to do their shopping. We expect our planning application will be registered and available for public comments shortly, and we would like to thank the people of Melton Mowbray for their support.”

The jobs created would be full- and part-time, with additional job opportunities through construction and supply chain.
