Aldi seek to redevelop site in Ardee

Aldi Ireland have lodged an application with Louth County Council, seeking to redevelop a site at Jervis Street in Ardee.

The application, received by Louth County Council on August 30, sees Aldi permission for "development at a site at Jervis Street, that is bound by Jervis St (N52) to the south and Ash Walk to the north and east, and has a site area of c. 0.75 hectares."

According to the application, a portion of the site is within the overall curtilage of protected structure LHS017-074 - Santa Barbara. There are no works planned however for the structure.

The proposed development Aldi are seeking would consist of demolition of all existing buildings, structures and hard surfaces onsite and the construction of a single storey discount foodstore (to include off licence use) with gross floor area of c. 1,760 sq.m (net retail area 1,315 sq.m).

It also seeks to develop new vehicular/pedestrian/cyclist access from Jervis Street (including proposed future access to adjoining lands), with new access from Jervis Street to include demolition of the existing stone boundary wall (adjacent to Jervis Street). 

A decision is due on the application by October 24, with submissions due by October 3.
