Aldi starts consultation on plans for its new Highbridge store

Supermarket giant Aldi has this week started local consultation on its plans to build a new store on Highbridge's Isleport Business Park.

As first reported by here last week, the German supermarket chain is drawing up plans for the new store on vacant land near the junction with the A38 through Highbridge.

An information leaflet is being distributed to residents and businesses in the surrounding area this week asking for local views before the company submits its formal planning application.

An Aldi spokeswoman told "Aldi is delighted to confirm that we would like to open a neighbourhood discount food store in Highbridge, to give local people in Highbridge and Burnham-On-Sea easier access to the popular Aldi offer."

"The proposed site is an undeveloped part of the Isleport Business Park, off Bennetts Road."

"A new Aldi would create up to 40 new jobs and the contemporary building would provide an attractive gateway to the wider estate, encouraging further investment and attracting more visitors for the benefit of new and existing businesses."

As we first reported last week, Burnham and Highbridge town councillors discussed the proposals during a meeting last Monday (November 14th).

If local people would like further information regarding Aldi's proposals, email the project team at
