Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry has secured a debate in Parliament to raise her concerns that supermarket chain Aldi has failed to build homes they promised in Stapleford despite obtaining permission to do so in 2016. The 10 homes are to be built on disused brownfield on Pinfold Lane alongside a new supermarket which is also yet to be built.
The debate will take place on Tuesday 3rd July and will mean that the relevant Minister will respond.
Anna said: “I have a growing concern that Aldi are sitting on the land and letting it become overgrown, despite promising to build the houses. We are in desperate need of new housing and Broxtowe Borough Council were brave in asking Aldi to build the homes as a condition of building their new store. Aldi agreed and they must now fulfil their promise.”
“Of course, the sooner Aldi get on and build the homes, they can also build their new supermarket which will benefit them as well as Stapleford’s residents. Any further delay is unacceptable.”
“The debate will highlight the issue and hopefully Aldi will now get on and build the homes, which is in line with Government Policy.”
