PLANS are due to be submitted to Cheshire East Council this week for an Aldi superstore in the heart of Holmes Chapel - with work set to start next year.

The planning consultancy team at JLL in Manchester is due to lodge a planning application with Cheshire East Council on behalf of Liberty Properties for a site on Manor Business Park in Holmes Chapel.

The scheme would be anchored by discount retailer Aldi, which would occupy a 19,418 sq ft unit.

Emyr Williams, development director at Liberty Properties, said: "The development will drive inward investment and job opportunities in Holmes Chapel. In addition, with the end result offering greater shopping convenience to the village, we've already received a positive response to the proposals from the communities."

Joanna Gabrilatsou, planning and development director at JLL in Manchester, said: "This scheme will help regenerate previously underused sites in Holmes Chapel and vastly improve the retail choices – something which both of these communities have called out for."

The planning team at JLL advised on both schemes.

The architect for the Holmes Chapel scheme is the Harris Partnership and if approved, construction on both sites would begin in early 2016.

The planning application is due to be submitted this week and villagers will have the chance to comment on the proposal.

The German giant held a consultation event in July, which saw villagers respond in a positive manner to the plans.
