Burrows Yard

A derelict former council yard and petrol station in Aberavon could be transformed into a new Aldi supermarket and Starbucks coffee shop.

The vacant Burrows Yard site has been branded as an “eyesore” by locals, but that could all soon change after news that Neath Port Talbot Council had exchanged contracts for the site.

Local councillor, Stephanie Grimshaw revealed on social media that “after years of hard work and a huge thanks to the team, I am now able to confirm that negotiations have completed with ALDI and the Magic Bean Company (Starbucks franchisee).”

“I know this has been a long time coming for many residents and I am sure we will all look forward to the site being used positively.”

Fellow councillor Andrew Dacey added: “It has been empty for a long period of time so I’m very glad something is going to be developed on Burrows Yard, and it will no longer be an eyesore on the entrance to Aberavon.”

A planning application for the site is understood to be submitted shortly.
