Retrospective application for Greggs


A retrospective planning application for the conversion of a carwash at Nunney Catch into a Greggs bakery is currently open for comments until Wednesday 3 May.

The food outlet opened recently in the forecourt of the Euro fuel station without planning permission in place. Work on the conversion commenced even before the bakery chain’s planning department got involved.

Neighbours have already complained of litter, noise and smells since the new Greggs started trading. But other Nunney residents have welcomed the arrival of the steak bakes, doughnuts and sausage rolls.

In comments already submitted some residents have pointed out how close the bakery is to the fuel pumps. Lorries blocking access to the bakery have also led to customers parking across private drives.

The retrospective planning application is currently on Mendip District Council’s planning website. The reference is 2017/0193/FUL.

The public consultation closes on Wednesday 3 May. Because much of Nunney Catch is formally part of Trudoxhill, the application is listed under Trudoxhill.

Greggs is the largest bakery chain in the UK. The first Greggs was opened in 1951. The chain currently has 1,764 outlets around the country.
