The proposed development is part of the masterplan area for development at Manse Farm which was granted planning permission in 2014 and is currently under construction.

The plans are still at an early stage and before submitting a planning application Aldi would like to know what local residents think of its proposal.

Leaflets about the plans have been sent to residents in Knaresborough, which state that the new store would help residents ‘save time and money’.

The food giant is inviting the local community to a public exhibition, displaying its vision for the proposed new store on Wednesday, November 27 between 3pm and 7pm.

The exhibition will take place at the Chain Lane Community Hub.

Aldi says its proposal would deliver a multi-million-pound investment in the area, creating between 30 and 50 new jobs in the store, as well as additional employment opportunities during construction, and in the supply chain.

People urged to be vigilant after shop burgled in Harrogate districtA spokesperson for Aldi said: “We’re delighted to announce our plans to develop land off York Road into a new Aldi food store to contribute to the delivery of development at Manse Farm in Knaresborough.

“This site is ideally placed to serve existing and future local residents closer to their homes.

“Aldi is known for encouraging linked trips between its stores and other businesses in the area, as typically Aldi customers will purchase value for money products and then go on to complete their weekly shopping in other local stores and specialist independent businesses.

“We would like to encourage local residents to come along to the public exhibition on Wednesday, November 27 to view the plans, talk to the project team, and provide us with their feedback.”
