A proposed application for a petrol station in Aylsham will be discussed at the town council meeting next week.

The Lindum Group are wanting to put a petrol station on the corner of the junction of Burgh Road and the A140.

The application will include the demolition and replacement of Aylsham Bathroom and Kitchen Centre, which was destroyed by fire two years ago.

The proposed development will include a traditional petrol filling station arrangement with eight dispenser fill locations on four islands under a canopy. It will also include a sales kiosk with retail opportunities.

The company said the proposal would help to meet a real and identifiable shortfall in petrol provision in the local area and in doing so have a positive visual impact on this prominent access into the town.

Sue Lake, Aylsham town clerk, said: 'It is certainly something that has been requested. The council will be discussing as to whether it will tie in with the proposed roundabout that it might be welcoming at that junction.

'It is fairly ridiculous at the moment to have to go to Norwich to fill up or further out to the coast.'
