Asda revives plan for new petrol station on Old Kent Road

Supermarket chain Asda wants to install a three-pump petrol station in the car park of its Old Kent Road store.

Asda revives plan for new petrol station on Old Kent Road

The petrol station would have pay-at-pump card machines and the only member of staff would be a 'forecourt greeter'.

38 car parking spaces for Asda shoppers would be lost as a result of the proposal.

Southwark planners rejected a similar scheme in 2013 on archaeological and transport grounds.

Now Asda has come back with revised plans including an archaeological assessment.

The site is deemed to be of potential archaeological interest because of the discovery of significant finds from the mesolithic age on the adjacent B&Q site.

In its transport statement Asda argues that the petrol station will have a "negligible" impact on the local road network.
