ALDI has announced plans for a new, state-of-the-art discount food store along with a drive-thru bakery unit and electric vehicle (EV) charging hub in North Wales

Located at Plot 2A, The Airfields at South Camp, Welsh Road, Sealand, this development aims to offer a modern retail experience while catering to the needs of the growing residential community in the area.

The proposed scheme encompasses an Aldi food store, a drive-thru bakery unit, and an EV charging hub featuring 18 spaces.

The proposed Aldi store is expected to create up to 40 full-time equivalent jobs, providing valuable employment opportunities for the local residents. Additionally, the development will offer free customer parking facilities for 176 cars, including dedicated spaces for accessibility, parent-and-child, bicycles, and motorcycles.

Bryn Richards, real estate director for Aldi, said: "Our plans for the Aldi food store, drive-thru unit, and EV charging hub reflect our ongoing commitment to delivering high-quality retail experiences while prioritising sustainability and convenience.

"We are confident that these proposals will not only benefit the local community but also contribute to economic growth and job creation in the region."

Aldi has initiated the statutory pre-application consultation period, inviting feedback from the community before finalising the plans for submission to Flintshire Council.

The local community is encouraged to provide their feedback by Wednesday, June 12 and further information can be accessed via the project website at
