Work on a huge new petrol station with a drive-thru Starbucks and other outlets is staking shape. Euro Garages submitted an application for the new forecourt off the Northern Gateway roundabout off Hedon Road, next to Holderness Drain, which was later granted. Now work is well under way and signs have been erected which reveal, as well as the Starbucks, there will be an Asda store and forecourt, a Cooplands bakery and a Totally Wicked vaping store.

As well as serving fuel, there will be a convenience store, a car wash, a separate lorry wash, electric charging bays alongside the coffee shop.

But there is still a lot of fencing up and diggers on site with much work still to do. The development is set to create around 50 part and full time jobs but there is no date set yet for when it will all open. Euro Garages Ltd operate almost 400 petrol filling station sites throughout the UK and over 6,000 globally. In the planning statement, the applicant said: “The petrol filling station and coffee shop will offer both an important roadside service function but also deliver an accessible location for those in existing employment at adjacent businesses to access petrol, food and drink.

The importance of the safety and welfare of motorists is addressed through provision of modern facilities that provide opportunities to stop and take a break in the course of their journey. “Key to modern roadside facilities are opportunities for motorists to rest and have access to facilities, food and drink. As such modern petrol filling stations now have an ancillary retail offer to provide basic top up items, the range of goods is such that it would not be possible to do a full weekly shop.” The applicant also gave details about what will be sold within the petrol station store. In the planning statement it says: “In this case the proposed development seeks to complement the sales of petrol with the associated shop/food counter and coffee shop in meeting the needs of the passing motorist and providing a basic range of day to day goods.” It will sell a “very limited range” of groceries, such as chilled-dairy, limited frozen meals, fruit, tinned and packaged products, confectionery, snacks and drinks. Non-food items such as household products, toiletries, newspapers, magazines, BBQ fuels, cigarettes and car care items will also be sold. Euro Garages have a policy of not selling alcohol at any of their sites. Video LoadingVideo UnavailableClick to playTap to playThe video will auto-play soon8CancelPlay now
