PLANS have been submitted to build an extension to the forecourt shop at Taunton Deane Filling Station.

Motor Fuel Group has lodged the application for the Deane Gate Avenue site, which also includes proposals to reduce the forecourt canopy, with Taunton Deane Borough Council.

A statement with the application says: "The proposal is to extend to the front the existing forecourt shop, delinking the existing forecourt canopy from the building and removing the tiled roof from the canopy, and removal of the existing jet wash.

"The extension will extend the tiles pitched roof to suit the falls from the existing building, and a small flat roof will be built where the existing pitched roof doesn’t reach on the side."
