Heath residents divided over plan for new Aldi

RESIDENTS of Caerphilly Road and Pheonix Way in Heath are split over plans to build a new Aldi.

The derelict site has been a hub of antisocial behaviour for a number of years, and supermarket chain Aldi is planning to turn it into a supermarket with 125 parking spaces as part of its plans to expand to 1,000 stores across the UK.

The site is currently secured with a provisional planning application in place

But residents of Caerphilly Road are concerned at the possibility of more car crashes, having had several incidents following the introduction of bus lanes in a £2.2 million project which was completed last autumn, says Steve Bowden, a long-term resident of Heath.

In April, Aldi opened a new distribution centre in Wentlooge, between Cardiff and Newport, creating 400 jobs.
