EXCLUSIVE: German retail giant ALDI has applied to build a $5 million discount supermarket in the Perth Hills hamlet of Mundaring.
The first pictures of the planned Mundaring Aldi come hot on the heels of recent oneperth.com.au revelations that ALDI also has designs on the outer Perth suburbs of Kwinana, Cannington an Southern River.
The pictured render of the Mundaring ALDI is now before a state assessment panel which at a meeting on July 23 will decide whether or not Mundaring gets a brand new, German-owned discount supermarket.
If approved, the planned ALDI will rise at 22-24 Hartung Street, and have a more rustic design than its planned counterparts on the Swan Coastal Plain.
Mundaring ALDI would have a gross floor area of 1610 sqm, wheelchair access and 87 car bays.
The planned ALDI has received six objections. One complainant questions the need for a third supermarket in leafy Mundaring, and is concerned the ALDI will lead to more traffic and noise.
Another local strongly objects, saying Mundaring ALDI will “ruin the character of the Mundaring Village which is defined by a quiet, relaxed lifestyle”.
The Shire of Mundaring has recommended that the state planning panel approve the Mundaring ALDI.
