The opening of a coffee shop on the A11 has been delayed after plans were withdrawn.
The proposal to build a Starbucks coffee shop, restaurant and drive-thru at Thetford service station east, on the A11, has been approved by Breckland Council. Motor Fuel Limited has submitted new plans with alterations on December 24 2019 with a finalised plan on February 2 this year.
It was believed to be a Costa coffee due to previous planning documents describing the building has being a mix of white and western red. But new site plans reveal the restaurant to be a Starbucks. Despite the new application the firm has withdrawn its current bid.
Currently the site has a BP petrol station, Greggs and Stone Willy's Kitchen.
Plans on the council's website show that two disabled parking bays and electric charging points would be installed.
