Bring an Aldi Store to Barry, South Wales

Bring an Aldi Store to Barry, South Wales

Allow the supermarket chain, Aldi, to open a store in Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan
They have applied to the Vale of Glamorgan Council on a number of occasions for permission to open a store, but each time it has been rejected by the authoritie's planning department

Why is this important?

Barry is the 5th largest town in Wales (after Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Wrexham and Merthyr) and could easily support an Aldi store.
This would give local people access to the two budget supermarkets and widen the choices available to the people in Barry.
Using Facebook as my measure, I believe that there is a significant majority of people in Barry that would welcome the addition of an Aldi store and that the Vale's planning department should respect the wishes of the people in Barry

Reasons for signing

  • I am looking to move into Barry from a nearby area and will not relocate until there is an Aldi close by. The reasons for the refusal of an Aldi store by the council sound small minded or worse, maybe simply protecting other supermarkets profit margins. They seem more than happy to build an incinerator against public wishes, but not happy to give residents more choice and help jobs?
