A HEREFORD petrol station will undergo a redevelopment, if plans are approved by planners.

The planning application states the existing Harvest Energy service station on Commercial Road will be demolished, including the removal of the six underground storage tanks.

A new, enlarged, forecourt shop will be built, and a further two car parking spaces will be provided. This will take the total number of spaces for cars up to six, as well as disabled, motorcycle and cycle parking.

In the plans submitted to Herefordshire Council, the applicant said the proposal is mainly to secure the existing customer base, and an increase isn't expected.

If approved, there will also be a three-pump starter gate, a new forecourt and canopy, as well as three jet washes for customers and two 70,000 litre underground tanks.

New jobs are also expected to be created, two full-time roles and four part-time.

Comments on application 193011 can be made until October 4, with planners expected to make a decision by October 17.
