A deal has been completed for a fuel station on a new mixed-use development in Nelson.

Situated alongside the Leeds and Liverpool Canal at junction 13 of the M65, construction of the fuel station is to begin in January.

It will be operated by The Kay Group, one of the UK’s top 25 independent fuel retailers, who has completed the deal for an undisclosed amount.

They new facility will sit within a six-acre site on Pendle Street upon which Leeds company Eshton is developing industrial units and residential dwellings.

Eshton, which developed Burnley Bridge Business Park, secured planning consent to develop the former Reedyford Mill site in June.

Richard Cox, managing director at The Kay Group, said: “Situated within the heart of East Lancashire, this location is a great opportunity for us as a business and is also ideally located for our customer base.

“We have been impressed with Eshton’s vision to create a new development with great accessibility that will serve a wide range of users, not least the thousands of people who travel along the M65 every day.

“We’re looking forward to getting cracking with the new site and aim to be fully operational by May 2016.”
