Work to demolish a former fuel depot in Colwick could soon get underway now plans for the work have been submitted to Gedling Borough Council for approval.
Oil and gas giant Total announced earlier in the year they will be leaving their fuel storage site at Colwick Industrial Estate during 2019 and plan to demolish the site,
The application for the demolition was submitted on August 20 and prior approval was granted on October 9.
Plans to close the Nottinghamshire terminal as part of a new logistics programme were first announced by Total back in 2015.
The land is key to Gedling Borough Council’s ambition to transform the area, with a cinema, Sainbury’s supermarket and restaurant planned for the site.
The new planning application, submitted to Gedling Borough Council, is as follows:
Total Oil Great Britain Ltd Road No 3
Prior Notification of Proposed Demolition of: Road Loading Petrochemical Distribution Terminal, Hydrocarbon Storage Tanks, Above ground Pipe work, Road Loading Bays. Vapor Recovery Unit, Switch Rooms, Control Room / Office Buildings, Concrete Bunds, Concrete Hard Standings, Underground Interceptors and pipework
Future plans for the depot and adjacent former Texaco and Esso oil depot include a new Sainsbury’s store, cinema, restaurant and other commercial buildings.
Colwick Councillor Meredith Lawrence said: “I am pleased to see that demolition is taking place and look forward to the development of the site to bring new jobs and facilities into my Gedling Borough Council ward.”
