Aldi get the go-ahead for store in Heath

Aldi UK was successful in gaining planning permission for Cardiff Council to build a new supermarket on the former garage & Electrocoin site on Caerphilly Road & work has now commenced on the site.

Fenella said ‘There has been controversy about the siting of another supermarket in this area of Heath, and which could potentially impact the viability of smaller shops in the locality.  But local residents were supportive of the development, even though there will be a loss of parking spaces for Caerphilly Road residents, and increased traffic in this very busy stretch of road.’

HB Independents will be keeping residents updated as the development progresses.
