Rontec to open site in Northumberland

14 February, 2014

Rontec has leased a site at Alnwick, Northumberland, which has been vacant for more than a year, and will reopen it tomorrow.

The Northumberland Estates developed the site at Cawledge and it first opened in June 2012, but the initial tenant suffered a number of problems and it closed six months later.

The site’s fuel offer will be BP-branded, and Rontec’s Shop’N Drive convenience store will open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The reopening has created nine new jobs and a further nine are expected to follow in May.

The site also has planning permission for a drive-thru restaurant and there is speculation in the town that it may be taken by McDonald’s.

Under the planning conditions, a detailed application would have to be submitted by November next year.

When a major car manufacturer like Ford predicts that sales of its electrified cars will outnumber petrol and diesel models by 2022, does that ring alarm bells about the possible speed of change for forecourts?
