Barrow budget supermarket plans to extend

The Aldi supermarket branch based in Barrow-in-Furness is seeking to expand and has now submitted plans to local councillors for their approval.

The discount chain’s outlet is situated on a junction in Barrow where Bridgegate Avenue, Risedale Road and Greengate Street meet. Aldi’s submitted plans to extend include an increased parking area, pedestrian walkways for customers, a larger shop front, more space for its onsite warehouse and a new store entranceway.

If council planners approve the supermarket’s application, it will not be the first time the property has been extended. The store was first built to house another discount retailer, the French company Netto, back in 1993. Netto extended the premises to the east and north in 2012, and in 2015, after Aldi took over the space, it received approval to extend the store further.

Enterprises seeking to expand their premises and homeowners planning house extensions in Chester, Macclesfield and other parts of the UK can look to professional architects for strong support. While able to create designs that make the most of available space in line with local regulations, architects can also assist projects to pass smoothly through the planning application process, acting as agents for property owners and developers alike.

As of yet, there have been no official objections from residents in the area, but local councillors are still debating the proposal and are also considering the option of Aldi establishing a second site in the area, instead of extending the current branch.
