Aldi was granted a permit to open its first Mildura store in November 2017.

THE state planning umpire has scrapped a requirement for supermarket chain Aldi to fund the design and construction of a new pedestrian crossing at Fifteenth Street.

The condition was placed on a planning permit granted to Aldi by Mildura Council in November last year, which the company challenged at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

However, VCAT upheld the council's decision to block traffic turning right when exiting the Aldi car park on to Fifteenth Street.
