Motorists in and around Glentham might run the risk of running empty if plans for the village petrol station come to fruition.

An application has been submitted to West Lindsey District Council to change the use of the current Glentham Garage into a fuel distribution depot.

It contains a car servicing business, a house for the business owners, a petrol station forecourt with three pumps, plus a site sales room.

Applicant Ken Shingdia of K9 Fuels, Lincoln, seeks to demolish the existing sales and servicing workshop and the petrol station forecourt. Existing underground fuel tanks would also go and three fuel tanks and a portable cabin would be built. The house would stay but it may be converted to offices.

“The low quality, rundown petrol forecourt and workshop building will be replaced by an area for five HGVs to park,” said the application.

The proposed depot would use existing developed (brownfield) land and would be well sited through its central rural location.

“A large proportion of the clients being provided with this service are agricultural farms and businesses as well as domestic oil supplies,” the application added.
