Councillors have backed plans to build a new budget supermarket in Rhuddlan.
The Aldi store, earmarked for derelict land near the Premier Inn hotel on Marsh Road, was approved at a committee hearing in Ruthin on Wednesday – it’s set to create up to 40 jobs.
Denbighshire County Council had recommended the supermarket be given the go ahead, but Rhuddlan Town Council said it was concerned about what impact it may have on traffic moving through the area.
A new set of traffic lights to allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross at the junction with Station Road and Marsh Road, following a suggestion by highways officers. But the town council said the lights would lead to tailbacks heading towards the roundabout.
Aldi said it was encouraged by the support its received for the new store, which will have a contemporary design and completing other buildings on the retail park site. The budget chain is also planning to build a new Denbigh store at the site of the former Kwik Save at Station Yard.
