Green light for new Aldi store in Eckington

Have your say

Planning permission has been granted for a new Aldi store in North Derbyshire.

The new supermarket in Eckington will be situated on the former Northgate Information Solutions site on Littlemoor Road.

Up to 50 full-time and part-time jobs will be created and £40,000 will be spent on town improvements.

A North East Derbyshire District Council spokesman said: “The site has been vacant for some time, meaning that a brownfield site will be brought back into use, with the company working with the council to secure jobs for local people.”
