Plans for a new drive-thru coffee shop in Burntwood have been approved.

Operated by Starbucks, the development would sit on land currently forming part of the so-called blue hoardings site off Milestone Way.

It would sit alongside an area earmarked for the previously approved KFC outlet.

As well as the building itself, plans have also been approved for illuminated signs for the new coffee shop.

A planning statement said:

“Given the nature of the proposed use, the principle of the proposed development in the town centre location would be acceptable. It would assist with the regeneration of the area and help to meet the needs of the growing residential population.

“The proposals will reuse part of a vacant brownfield site which has been identified for development for many years and will claw back significant expenditure to Burntwood which is currently being spent outside the area.”
