Plans have been submitted for a Starbucks drive thru coffee shop in Colburn.
The shop would be built on land on the opposite side of the road to the Broadway.
Permission is also being sought for three shops or food outlets on the site.
Documents submitted with the plans state: “The proposals will facilitate the redevelopment of an underutilised, prominent site to the south of Catterick Road in a highly accessible location in Colburn.
“The application proposals will also provide enhanced local facilities for local residents and would generate a number of job opportunities for local people and the employment and economic benefits associated with the proposals should be afforded significant weight in the assessment of the proposals.”
Although the plans do not state the drive thru would be occupied by Starbucks, the coffee company’s name is used on plans for the scheme.
The site already has outline planning permission for a retail development which was granted in 2015.
Plans have already been submitted for a Starbucks drive thru and Burger King restaurant further along Catterick Road, opposite the Beacon Garage.
However, a number of objections have been raised against the scheme by local residents, as well as the MoD and Colburn Town Council.
