A planning application has been submitted to Birmingham City Council for a Starbucks drive thru’ coffee shop in the car park of Morrisons supermarket in Rubery Rednal.
The full application, submitted by Morrisons, is for a drive thru’ with its own parking and associated landscaping to sit in the western part of the car park, between the store and the petrol station.
In a supporting statement, developers recognise that as a coffee shop is classed as a town centre use, the city’s planning committee would need to consider both local (Longbridge Area Action Plan LaAP) and national (National Planning Policy Framework NPPF) planning guidelines to make its decision.
In the document, developers state that no other site for a coffee shop – a drive thru’ specifically – can be identified in the nearby centres of Longbridge, Rubery or Frankley and as such the proposed location would be appropriate.
