A new Aldi store in Cudworth cannot be built fast enough according to a local councillor.
Plans for the new supermarket in Barnsley Road were given the green light by Barnsley Council this week.
Cudworth councillor Joe Hayward said the plans 'ticked the right boxes and provided healthy competition in the village.
"In total it has been well received by the people of Cudworth," he said.
The meeting was told on Tuesday the new supermarket will create 30 jobs, as well 250 construction posts.
The store and car park would complement existing shops, it was said, and Aldi would not be selling newspapers , lottery tickets or have a deli in store.
An Aldi property director said 92 per cent of people who attended a public consultation in April were in favour of the plans.
He said they were happy it was creating more jobs, that it created value for money and offered more choice.
Council planning officer Matthew Smith, said 70 letters of support had been submitted to the council with three letters of objection.
Coun Hayward, who has been supporting the establishment of a foodbank in Cudworth, said Aldi would help people who are short on cash with its lower prices.
"It's not the brand names they are looking at, it's the pennies in their pockets," he said.
"They can't build it fast enough."
