A budget supermarket in north Leeds has pushed back its opening date until next year.

Aldi, in Wetherby, was due to open later this year but now it looks set to open in Spring 2017.

The plans to build the new store on Sandbeck Lane and Deighton Road were given the green light by Leeds City Council planners in March last year.

Mayor of Wetherby, Harry Chapman said concern is growing over the state of the site.

He said: “Residents around aren’t very happy, there’s a lot of houses behind that are quite concerned.

“The site is an eyesore and the build needs to take place as soon as possible.”
