No Aldi Oadby started this petition to planning@oadby-wigston.gov.uk and

Aldi are looking to build a new supermarket on the Green Wedge land next to the Racecourse Roundabout and Petrol station just off Palmarston road in Oadby.

There are many reasons why so many local residents in Oadby and Knighton are opposed to this proposal, or for any kind of development on this site. Here are just some of the reasons:-

Traffic: This is already a very busy area, not just at rush hour but most of the day - and even more so when the racecourse has events taking place.

Conservation: The proposed area is an existing wildlife site.
 
Environment: Trees were planted in the recent past to offset the risk of flooding (see below).
 
Flooding: the proposed site is a flood plain. If it is 'concreted over' for 132 parking spaces where will the rain water run-off flow? This will cause further serious implications and will exacerbate existing flooding issues to neighbouring properties and properties down-stream (e.g. Carisbrooke Road)

For those of you who have not received a copy of the proposal from Aldi, please see the below link.
