The blueprints of the proposed redevelopment of a village pub have been labelled ‘unacceptable’ by planning officers.
Tout Ltd, which runs Budgens stores in Langford and Nailsea, wants to demolish the Lord Nelson and replace it with a petrol station, shop and pub café.
The plans for Cleeve’s pub, in Main Road, however have been criticised by North Somerset Council’s highways department.
The council took issues with the layout of the site, saying petrol tankers could not safely exit onto the A370.
The highways report stated: “This is a wholly unacceptable layout for a key, highly-trafficked route and demonstrates the tanker cannot safely exit the site.

“Furthermore, should the tanker wish to exit towards Bristol, it appears unlikely this manoeuvre can be completed within the available space.”
Many villagers are campaigning against the plans as they believe a petrol station would be harmful.
