An abandoned petrol station on the A38 which has been closed for more than 20 years will be redeveloped after planning permission was secured.
Certas Energy has received a green light from North Somerset Council to create a self-service filling station near Barrow Gurney.
The developer will regenerate the derelict petrol station, close to The Fox & Goose Pub and Bristol Airport, and will install three floodlights.
Planning permission was granted by the council subject to conditions, including limited trading hours of 7am-11pm.
Barrow Gurney Parish Council, ahead of the decision, raised concerns over traffic, access, and lighting – which it said ‘would create significant light pollution and is not proportionate to the setting’.

However, these fears were overruled by North Somerset’s planning officers.
Case officer Raheel Mahmood said: “The highway officer has no objection to the proposal subject to conditions.”
