Walsingham Planning has become increasingly involved in acting for Euro Garages in assisting the growth and appointment of its network of roadside facilities. We now have a large number of applications running across England, Scotland and Wales seeking the delivery of new and enhanced forecourts, principally via the delivery of additional retail and food and drink floorspace, to complement the existing fuel offer.
Our first permission acting for Euro Garages was recently secured in Moreton-in Marsh, Gloucestershire. Here, we secured permission for the extension of the Forecourt Shop to accommodate a bakery kiosk and additional parking and circulation space. Despite the site being located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Special Landscape Value, utilising our expert knowledge of the forecourt sector, we were able to secure permission for the extension within 3.5 weeks of the application’s registration.
