And the amazing thing is that the construction company building the crossing are going to give us a new ALDI store at the same time. Last month HDC gave permission for the work to start on the new store development opposite Morrisons where the old Chicory factory stood.
Aldi has described the design of the new store as ‘innovative and distinctive’ and of high quality and preliminary work will start over the summer. Aldi have promised to keep St Ives residents informed on progress and say that up to 40 new jobs will be created.
The new store plans show 126 car park spaces and they have ringfenced £172,000 to construct the Toucan crossing.
