Colburn filling station to close for redevelopment

The Jet garage in Colburn will close on at the end of the month for the filling station to be redeveloped.

It is expected the work to the Beacon Garage site will take around six months.

Planning permission was granted in 2020 for the redevelopment.

The work will see a new shop created with a six-island filling station with canopy and a HGV facility to the rear of the building.

There were also be two new jet wash bays and customer parking at the front of the shop.

New below ground 60,000 litre furl storage tanks will also be built.

Electric vehicle charging points will also be built at the rear of the facility after the addition was requested by North Yorkshire County Council’s highways department.

This is the revised layout of the new redeveloped garage:

Only one objection was received when the planning application was submitted.

This was from a resident concerned that the new facility — like the current garage — would be open 24hrs.

The resident said the existing 24hr operation had resulted in a history of anti-social behaviour from people going to and from the shop in the garage on foot from the nearby residential areas which has adversely affected local residents, who had reported problems to the police, the garage operators and to the parish council.

However, the application was approved with 24hr opening allowed.

A report to councillors from the district council’s planning department concluded: “The proposed redeveloped petrol filling station and associated retail store will support the future operational of the local facility, and will support small scale employment and economic growth.

“The proposals will make a small contribution towards renewable energy provision through the provision of electric charging points and will encourage non-motorised modes of transport by providing cycle parking provision.

“The proposals will not have a significant adverse impact on neighbour amenity.”
