PLANS have to been submitted to build a new community shop and Post Office for Ralegh's Cross in West Somerset.

The new single storey building would be located on land owned by the Ralegh's Cross Inn at the junction of the B3224 and the B3190.

The new shop and Post Office would be built within one of the existing closed paddocks at the site, and measure approximately 19.5m x 7.6m.

The applicants state that: "With the lack of public services in the local area, the proposal will provide a welcome benefit situated as it is within an existing commercial establishment with good vehicular access."

To view the full plans visit the planning section of the Somerset West & Taunton Council website and search for the application number 3/06/20/002.
