Another unanimous committee success

30 July 2018

Communications Potential is delighted to have helped secure permission for a new ALDI in Hertford. The store, which will be the first of its kind in the town, was passed unanimously by the planning committee.

The application proposed a 1,735 sqm foodstore on an allocated employment site, which also falls within flood zone 3. We sought early engagement with local stakeholders, including ward councillors, Hertford Town Council and local residents to inform them of the proposals and listen to feedback. This was extremely positive, with many people echoing our findings that an ALDI store in Hertford would provide an opportunity to shop locally, reduce travel times and save money too! In response to local feedback ALDI agreed to fund improvements to a local underpass and a management condition for the store car park.
