Petrol station removed from supermarket plans

Stroud News and Journal: Petrol station removed from supermarket plans Petrol station removed from supermarket plans

DEVELOPERS behind a controversial plan to build a £15million supermarket in Ryeford have been forced to amend their proposal and remove the petrol station.

The removal of the petrol station from the proposal, which includes a 55,000 square foot store at a brownfield site near the Ryeford Junction on the Ebley Bypass, was announced at a Stonehouse Town Council meeting on Monday.

According to a Stroud District Council spokesman the plans were changed by the developer Property Alliance Group in response to concerns from the environment agency and council planning officers about building a petrol station on an area that is considered a flood risk.

During a public consultation on the plans in June last year concerns were raised about the potential risk of flooding on the site however positive comments were also made about what a petrol station would mean for fuel price competition.

The amended version of the proposal is due to be discussed by SDC’s planning committee in April.

Shouldn't be building anything where there is a flood risk.
Just look at the news to see how many people's homes have been ruined because they have been built on floodplains.
