A PETROL station, shop and offices are being proposed for an empty car showroom in Greenock.

Plans have been submitted for the vacant former Arnold Clark premises on the A8 Port Glasgow Road including demolishing the workshop area and converting the showroom building.

A document included with the planning application states: “The concept of the proposed development is to regenerate a prominent vacant commercial site and bring new commercial use and business to the area.

“The proposal is for a mix of uses associated with current and future roadside convenience needs and will be operated by familiar brands — BP and Shell are very interested to site here to serve customers.

“The development will also retain new purpose-built business (office) space which will be leased to target the small/medium enterprise (SME) business start-up market.”

It continues: “Grove Retail Ltd has successfully redeveloped several prominent roadside sites within Scotland and across the UK. Its model marries an offer combining petrol station requirements along with convenience shopping and other service needs such as (in this case) automated jet wash, laundry and electric vehicle charging facilities.”

The application is pending consideration by Inverclyde planners.
