The former Godfrey Syrett building at Mill Road will be demolished before the supermarket is built. It is due to open in September 2025. 


Local councillors said there is widespread support for the plans but stressed the need for junction improvements at the A690.Other residents questioned whether another supermarket is needed given that there is a Lidl and Tesco in Langley Moor, but Aldi said it had prioritised the area for several years. It also proposed creating a new pedestrian crossing over the nearby A690.


Aldi said up to 40 new jobs will be created and will prevent residents from travelling to Durham, Crook and Spennymoor.
