BREAKING: Starbucks applies for third drive-thru in Gloucester

Starbucks has unveiled plans to build a drive-thru at Gloucester Business Park in Brockworth.

If given the nod it could create a possible hat-trick of convenience cafes in the city.

The American cafe giant has submitted an application to Tewkesbury Borough Council to build drive-thru with 26 parking bays that would be open 6am to 8pm, seven days a week.

It would be located on the final 0.84 acre development plot at the site off Delta Way, which was previously used as the marketing suite for the business park.

Starbucks already has an almost identical branch a 10-minue drive away at Gloucester Retail Park in Eastern Avenue.

And in January it submitted an application to Gloucester City Council for a drive-thru next to the former Cineworld in Gloucester Quays Retail Park  in St Ann Way. It is a 17-minute drive from Brockworth.

This plan would see 74 existing car parking spaces at the site- formerly known as The Peel Centre- transformed into a cafe with 37 parking bays.

It would also be open 6am to 8pm, seven days a week.

Neighbouring residents have objected to the plans and said the carpark already attracts drug users and drivers who perform wheelies and rev their engines late at night.

A separate application for an illuminated Starbucks sign on a nine-foot pole was submitted to the council in March.

Decisions are still pending on both applications.

The plans for the Brockworth have not attracted any official comments so far but a post about the plans on Hucclecote Parish Council's Facebook page has attracted 19 'likes'.
