EG wins consents in Burnley and Formby

Forecourt services operator EG Group has secured planning approval for two further sites in the region, in Burnley and Ince Blundell, Formby.

The expansive Lancashire business was advised on the applications by PWA Planning, and will create petrol filling station, retail and drive through café developments at the sites.

The development at Ince Blundell will replace the former Weld Blundell Arms pub on the Formby bypass, acquired by EG when operator Greene King put it up for sale in 2015. As part of the proposals, the adjacent West Blundell Bowling Club will be retained and upgraded.

In Burnley, on land off Barracks Road at junction 10 of the M65, EG will develop the site of the former General Havelock pub house and St Teresa’s Church, both of which have been closed for a number of years.

Emily Robinson, senior planner at PWA Planning, said: “These two developments will create new employment for local people and breathe new life into vacant sites.

“We have worked with EG Group on many of its new sites in the UK and these provide high-quality, efficient forecourt services to local communities and motorists.”

EG is headed by Zuber and Moshin Issa, who are also behind the Monte Blackburn development business working on Frontier Park, a logistics park near the Lancashire town.

I’m not sure the Havelock has been a “good pub” for some time. The Angel is alright though.
