Now Wm Morrisons Want a Petrol Filling Station in Houghton

The latest available weekly planning applications list reveals that permission is being sort to demolish the present Wm. Morrisons store (formerly Netto), and to replace it with a petrol filling station. The proposal would cause a net loss of 998 sq metres of the shops net trade-able area, and a net loss of 29 car parking spaces. A new exit would be created onto the High Street directly opposite the exit from the existing Georgina petrol station. It's proposed trading hours are 7am until 11pm. The proposal also includes a jet car wash.

If permission is granted this would put the Georgina petrol station business and that of existing car wash businesses in Houghton Regis under aggressive competitive strain.

The applicants conclude in their access and design statement, "The proposals will complement the consented adjacent superstore and serve to encourage competitive fuel pricing and provide further amenity to the community as well as designated parking for staff."
