Petrochemical company Shell has officially been confirmed as the face of Louth’s third petrol station as new image is revealed.
Applicants behind the project Blakemore Property Ltd and Glade Garland Ltd are heading up the £2.5 million project as work on site is underway with an estimated completion date of autumn this year.
The new image which was officially released today (Monday, March 3) shows how the final project will look once it is completed.
The Shell fuel forecourt will also be accompanied by a Spar convenience store.
The finished project could also see as many as 40 jobs become available in either full or part-time employment.
In the initial plans put forward to the District Council, the petrol station was planned to be run as a BP forecourt, but the situation swiftly changed and new negotiations began to find a new fuel supplier, which will now be Shell.
The Leader reported that the petrol station project had finally begun in January after planning permission was granted for the plans by East Lindsey District Council in 2010.
For the full details on this newest development of the project, see this week’s Louth Leader, out Wednesday, March 3.
