Plans for Costa Coffee and Marston’s carvery pub in Grimsby could be approved next week
29th March 2017
Plans to build a 200-job Costa Coffee drive-thru and a Marston's carvery pub could be approved next week.
As reported, the underused part of the Pyewipe Road site occupied by Jewson's had been earmarked for a new drive-thru coffee shop, Marston's carvery, and an In 'N' Out MoT centre.
It was understood that up to 100 new jobs would be created when the development is complete, and 100 during construction.
In documents published on North East Lincolnshire Council's website ahead of the planning committee meeting on Wednesday, March 29, it is recommended that the major proposals are approved.
The council documents state that the development "would not offer any undue harm to the neighbouring land uses or the wider vitality and viability of town centre." It also states that the development "would significantly improve the approach to the urban centres and create an attractive and more vibrant gateway on the A180."
The plans describe a mixed use development consisting of a pub/restaurant, drive-thru coffee shop, car service centre, including associated site works, as well as landscaping and alterations to the site access, including access to existing Jewsons.
The plans have been put forward by Andrew Wendler of LSP Developments Ltd.
Speaking back in July last year, a Jewson's spokesperson said: "We've been in discussions for a number of years to develop part of our site on the junction of Pyewipe Road and Westgate.
"A scheme has been submitted for the upgrading of our Jewson branch together with the possible development of a drive-through coffee shop, vehicle service centre and a pub and while discussions are at an advanced stage any agreements could still take some time."
The spokesperson added: "We would like to reassure our employees and customers that it's business as usual.
"We have no plans to close or move our business from this site.
"If the plans do materialise, we're confident that the improved Jewson facilities and new developments will be a real benefit to the local community."
