Supermarket giant Aldi has revealed where it plans to build its next Derby store.
Bosses have identified a plot of land off Rykneld Road, at Littleover’s Heatherton Village.
The new store, which would have a sales area of more than 1,300 sq metres, would be located on land near to the Hollybrook pub.
The proposed store would be served by 122 car parking spaces and create up to 40 new permanent jobs.
According to Aldi, the proposals form part of Derby City Council’s vision to create a “high quality and sustainable development” in Rykneld Road. The new Aldi store would form the first phase of this development.
In a statement, Aldi said: “The new Aldi food store will provide residents of Littleover with easy and convenient access to a wide range of award-winning products, without the need to travel by car.
“It will also deliver Derby City Council’s ambition to extend the Heatherton Neighbourhood Centre in Littleover.”
Aldi is currently considering feedback from local residents ahead of submitting a planning application.
A spokesperson for Aldi said: “We are delighted to announce our proposals for a new Aldi food store at Littleover.
“Derby City Council has earmarked Rykneld Road for development for over a decade and we are pleased to be part of the early phase of its delivery.

Aldi has put forward its proposals in partnership with Heatherton Developments, which is a joint venture between local developers Ark Capital and William Davis.
In a statement, Heatherton Developments said: “We are delighted to be working with Aldi to put forward these proposals.
“A new Aldi store will provide an extension to the Heatherton Neighbourhood Centre providing more choice for local residents.”
The area around Heatherton village is currently the focus of major residential development, with hundreds of homes being built at nearby Highfields.
