Another week, another old pub (site), another supermarket.
This time, it is the Red Lion site on Coulsdon High Street, long used as a car park, with plans put forward by German supermarket chain Aldi.
Aldi has distributed a leaflet in Coulsdon with a questionnaire seeking views on a proposal to build a foodstore with a “regional training facility” and 30 car park spaces on the Red Lion site, promising to create 30 jobs.
The Old Coulsdon Residents’ Association has uploaded the form to its website, and wants as many local residents as possible to engage in the consultation by printing it off, completing it and return it to the freepost address provided. The deadline for submissions is Friday, May 20.
