A busy petrol station on the A47 could be knocked down and completely rebuilt.

The plans to demolish and rebuild the Brundall Service Station on Yarmouth Road have been submitted by its owners Shell UK.

Proposals lodged with Broadland District Council seek permission to tear down the existing sales building and forecourt on the site, which is also known as Broadlands Service Station.

The fuel giant wants to build a new sales building, a forecourt with underground tanks, pumps and canopy, care parking spaces and bays where people can charge up their electric vehicles.

The plans are a revision of previous proposals which were lodged last year.

Those were withdrawn and changed after National Highways lodged an 'in principle' objection based on the site's layout.

National Highways were worried the previous plans could have led to cars blocking the site entrance and access to the next-door McDonald's, with a knock-on impact on the roundabout and A47.

But Shell hopes the fresh application, with a revised layout, will address those concerns.

A decision will be made in due course.
