SUPERMARKET giant Aldi has launched a fresh attempt to build a new store in a Hampshire town.

An application to build a store at Caird Avenue, New Milton, was thrown out earlier this year but the German company has now submitted a revised scheme.

Aldi says the proposed new store will create at least 30 jobs.

Its original proposal was rejected by just one vote at a meeting of New Forest District Council's planning committee in May.

Its earlier proposal on an out-of-town site in Caird Avenue, near Tesco, was turned down by just one vote by the NFDC planning committee in May.

In a statement issued at the time Aldi said it was "very disappointed", adding: "We certainly haven’t given up on a site in New Milton.”

Councillors rejected the first application after claiming the proposed new store should be built in Station Road, New Milton, instead.

They also said the proposal lacked sufficient landscaping and described the vehicle access to the site was unacceptable.

Now Aldi has submitted a revised scheme that aims to overcome the objections.

It also says the Station Road site identified by the council would not be commercially viable because there is not enough space for the 127 parking spaces needed.

Aldi is also insisting that the proposed new store will complement existing stores in the area, including Morrisons, Lidl and Tesco.
