Sustainable energy business Gridserve is seeking planning permission from South Lanarkshire Council to build an all-electric forecourt in Rutherglen.

The forecourt at Duchess Place, off the M74, would provide 22 high-power and six-low power electric vehicle charging spaces.

The facility would cater for increased dwell times, averaging 30 minutes per vehicle, through the provision of a retail space, coffee shop, toilets, and lounge area.

The main building will face directly onto the forecourt, sheltered by a 10.5 m wide solar canopy, anchored to a central walkway. The modular design would be built off-site, repeatable for future sites across the country, with metallic copper cladding panels contrasting with a feature Gridserve-branded gable.

The local authority is aiming to make a decision by 26 August 2023.
