Budget supermarket Aldi is pressing ahead with its plans for a new store in Welwyn Garden City.
The retailer has submitted a planning application for the installation of two internally illuminated signs, two internally illuminated posterboard signs, one non-illuminated logo sign and four graphic signs.
Aldi’s plans for a store in Bessemer Road were give the go ahead on September 28 when an application was submitted for a change of use and extension to an existing unit.
The latest application for a number of signs was submitted to Welwyn Hatfield Council on December 15.
An Aldi spokesman previously told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “We hope to open the store in spring 2018, creating up to 50 new jobs and allowing residents to shop and save closer to home.”
The new store, on the east side of Bessemer Road to the north of the Bakehouse pub, will have 106 customer car parking spaces.
