Aldi has unveiled “exciting plans” to open a store in Amersham.

The supermarket giant is looking to open a store on the site of the former Jaguar dealership in London Road West, between the A413 and A355.

Amersham residents have received a feasibility study from Aldi, which says: “A new store would provide local people with easier access to our popular, high quality, great value offer.

“The proposal will enhance local shopping choice, reduce the need to travel and create at least 40 new jobs.”

It directs residents to a consultation website where they can see Aldi’s plans for the new store, the next steps and how to get in contact.

The website says: “Aldi knows its customers are currently travelling out of the Amersham area to visit its stores.

“It has wanted to open a local store in Amersham for some time and is delighted to have identified the former Jaguar Dealership… as a location.

“The site will be developed, using sustainable construction materials and techniques, to provide a fresh, modern, new Aldi discount food store.”

It adds: “The site is a disused brownfield site and will be landscaped to complement the local area. There will be 101 parking bays, parking for blue badge holders and parents and children.

“There will also be cycle parking and four electric vehicle charging points.
