Powys County Council will make a decision on Aldi’s planning application for a new store in Welshpool by the end of the month.

Fears that the planning application would be delayed by Welsh Government were allayed today after a “holding order” was released.

Welsh Government had placed the holding order pending a response from the developers to certain questions. But Powys Council today confirmed the order had been lifted today.

“The application was subject to a holding order but that has been removed and it is anticipated that it will be determined before the end of the month,” said a Powys County Council spokesman this morning.

Welshpool Town Council recently backed the plans for the new Aldi supermarket to be built on the site alongside the Smithfield Bell.

The council’s planning, development and environment committee voted unanimously to support the plans after hearing the views of members of the public and receiving a presentation from the supermarket company.

But the council’s support is subject to 106 agreement funding to allow the Town Council to carry out a scheme of theming the area from the site to the town centre, including lighting to the canal and CCTV cameras around the site.

The Town Council has also asked Powys County Council to observe the concerns of residents who expressed views on late night deliveries, access issues, the removal of trees and noise levels.
