After buying the land seven years ago, On The Run (OTR) is a step closer to setting up shop in a regional South East town.
And it’s not the only fuel retailer with ambitious plans for Millicent, but there’s a blow ahead for hungry drivers.
The Peregrine Corporation have lodged a proposal with PlanSA and Wattle Range Council in the hopes of building its next OTR at the Millicent intersection, known as ‘Billy Goat Corner’, along Mount Gambier and Wyrie Road.
The planned OTR build will see the installation of a 24-hour car wash but there is no fast-food outlet in the works.
“The proposed development will offer groceries and prepared food but will not offer ‘co-branded’ quick-service restaurant food such as Oporto or Hungry Jacks,” the plans read.
“The proposal will not generate any nuisance for neighbours through food odour or other air pollution impacts of food preparation or service.”
A complete knockdown and replacement of the existing structures has been proposed with the former BP filling station currently “in very poor condition” and in “an advanced state of disrepair”.
Three fuel bowsers will be installed along with two 70,000L underground fuel tanks.
