In my view, in Bexhill we do not need another Aldi, we have a very good one in London Road, and there is also a much larger one in Bexhill Road, St Leonards.

We also have Lidl, Sainsbury’s. Tescos and the Co-op, as well as the M&S foodstore.

What is missing is a higher quality store, such as Waitrose.

There is ample space in Wainwright Road, currently rented on a short term rent by a firm selling sheds, which was, I believe, originally intended for the supermarket Morrisons, until they pulled out.

A Waitrose in this position, in the town centre would be a welcome addition which would complement our present range of stores.
