New service station plan for Barton

Residents fiercely opposed the plans

New plans have been lodged for a service station, including a drive through coffee shop and convenience store off the A1077 near Barton-Upon-Humber.

Euro Garages Ltd have submitted plans for a petrol station, along with a sandwich shop, three jet washes and car parking.

The proposal would see the station built on land off the A1077 Ferriby Road in Barton and seeks to amend already approved plans for a supermarket in the area.

The land, known as Top Field,  forms part of a Lidl development along with a pub and restaurant.

Site location off the A1077 near Barton.

Plans for store, which will see the original supermarket in Barton relocated, were fiercely opposed by local residents over traffic concerns and access to the site off Ferriby Road.

But councillors on North Lincolnshire Council’s planning committee gave permission to the plan back in January 2018.

Now, Euro Garages are seeking to amend the application to replace the already approved pub and restaurant with the petrol station.

The company have said that the development would provide up to 45 jobs in the area once complete.

They added in a design and access statement that the station would help to improve the town.

It said: “Given the current consent, the site’s location and the nature of the proposals, the principle of development can be established on the site and will result in a development that is sustainable and that would help strengthen the role with Barton-upon-Humber within the settlement hierarchy by improving the town’s amenities.”
