Greggs at Nunney Catch has applied for planning permission to place at 6.5 metre totem pole with illuminated sign at Nunney Catch roundabout.
Members of the public are able to comment on the planning application, with would see the 1.80 metre (6 ft) white and orange Greggs logo on a blue background on top of a huge pole placed on the roundabout side of the petrol station.
Although the proposed location and the franchise itself are officially on land that belongs to the neighbouring village of Trudoxhill, the site is for many residents and visitors the gateway to Nunney.
Trudoxhill Parish Council voted against giving permission on the basis that existing problems with traffic, parking and access had not yet been addressed. It fears that extra advertising will make matters worse.
Should the totem poll receive permission from Mendip District Council, Trudoxhill Parish Council wants to make it a condition that the sign is switched off at 8pm.
It also wants to see the existing problems addressed, something it says Somerset Highways agreed with.
The popular sausage roll outlet attracts many vehicles, including lorry drivers in a hurry to grab a bite to eat on their shift.
The planning application (reference 2020/0640/ADV) is available on the Mendip Planning website. You can leave comments, whether in favour or against. A deadline for comments has not yet been confirmed.
