Bargain supermarket Aldi have announced their plans for a new store in West Lothian.

The store, set to be at Greendykes Industrial Estate in Broxburn, will be the sixth store in the area for the German discount brand with stores already in Livingston, Bathgate, Whitburn and Linlithgow, with a second store due to open in Livingston later this year.

The proposals, if passed by West Lothian Council, will see a 1,315 square metre food store open on the site with plans for 107 car parking spaces including nine parent and child spaces, seven disabled bays and two electric vehicle bays.

Aldi say the development will create up to 35 jobs as well as supporting new jobs during construction and within the Aldi supply chain.

The supermarket is to host an online consultation in June seeking the views and feedback from the local community.

Following the consultation, it is anticipated that a planning application will be submitted for the new store later this summer with the shop opening to customers in Spring 2022.

Philip Johnston, property director for Scotland at Aldi, said: “This marks an exciting time as we bring forward plans for a sixth store in West Lothian. West Lothian is a key area of growth for Aldi and I am delighted to be able to present our plans to the local community and bring our award-winning offer to Broxburn and the surrounding villages.”

“It is clear that there is an under provision of a discount supermarket offering in Broxburn and the surrounding area and we are confident that the addition of a new Aldi store will help to address this. The store will help rejuvenate a former industrial site and create a number of full and part-time job opportunities within the town.

“While I am disappointed that I cannot personally welcome everyone to the public exhibition given the current circumstances, I welcome the opportunity to receive feedback from local residents and other interested parties through our online consultation.”
