Residents are calling for planners to reject a proposal to open a petrol station and supermarket for 24-hours a day.
The application has been submitted to Wakefield Council for the station on the corner of Hardwick Road and Ackworth Road, Pontefract.
The owner is seeking to lift a condition that restricts the opening hours that were imposed when the station was first redeveloped in 1990.
Under the proposals, the attached Co-op store would also remain open, with customers served through a ‘night window’ for security purposes.
However, 13 letters of objections have been received by the council, claiming there is no demand for such a service.
Resident David Jones wrote to Wakefield Council’s planning department and said: “There have been a number of challenges to applications on this site in the last seven months.
“This area is a quiet residential area. There are residential properties on all sides.
“It is clear that any changes to the operating hours would have a major impact on the quality of life on all local residents.”
A decision on the application is expected at a later date.
