TWENTY new jobs look set to be created as the opening of a new supermarket in a South Derbyshire village edges ever closer.
South Derbyshire District Council have revealed that bosses at Aldi look set to be granted a premises licence for a proposed new store on land off Huntspill Road, Hilton.
The licence is set to come into effect from October 1.
The store could open from 7am in the morning to 11pm at night under the licence proposals.
The application also shows that the firm could also sell alcohol during the same hours.
A report to the district council’s licensing and appeals sub-committee stated: “The age verification policy shall be ‘Challenege 25’ and it will be clear, prominently displayed on the premises that this is the case.
“A refusal log will be maintained in store with a designated supervisor examining the records, at least weekly, to see if any action needs to be taken.
“A CCTV system shall be installed and must be operating at all times when the premises are open.
“These records must be kept for a minimum of 28 days and must be kept securely.”
These condition were put in place after discussions with Derbyshire Police and Derbyshire County Council.
The store, which will create 20 new jobs, will feature 1,378 sq m of internal floor space, of which 990 sq m would be retail space.
This compares to 900 sq m in a previously permitted scheme from 2009.
Concerns about traffic have been eased after Aldi agreed to pay £55,000 for a pelican crossing to be installed on The Mease.
The applicants have also included a recycling centre for cardboard and plastics but, in agreement with the council’s waste team, is smaller than previously permitted.
A report to the council said: “The development would have no significant impact on road safety or highway capacity.”
The store would feature a car park for 64 vehicles.
The licence application has been recommended for approval but is set to be rubber stamped next week.
