KFC and Costa hope to open new branches near Goole

KFC and Costa have unveiled plans to open new branches on the edge of an East Yorkshire town.
Both KFC and Costa’s units would include a drive-thru, and would be built next door to a site already home to McDonald’s, Subway and a Premier Inn hotel.
The developer, Pegasus Group, said: “There is an existing services facility at Junction 36, known as Glews Garage.
“Planning permission was granted in 2014 for the redevelopment of the services…the original application plans showed one of the units labelled up as a KFC drive-thru with a Costa Coffee unit in the same unit.
“These were planned to be erected, however this did not happen. It is not expected that this part of the redevelopment would occur in the future as the two operators are involved in the current proposal.
“It is therefore clear that the proposed development will deliver an element of the original consent which was deemed acceptable by the council in this location, to meet the needs of motorists.”
The new plans would see KFC and Costa open on a new piece of land off Rawcliffe Road, close to the M62.
total of 64 new jobs would be created, in what comes as a boost to the town of Goole.
Pegasus Group, which has submitted the plans, said it would offer motorists with “a greater choice and encourage them to stop for a break.”
It also said the new site would complement the existing Glews Garage complex, and serve passing traffic on the M62.
“The proposed development would increase the offer available at this location and reinforce the location’s function as a roadside services to serve the M62 motorway and A614,” the plans said.
This is also reflected in the council’s ambition for the Goole and Humberhead Levels area to maximise its prime location on multi-modal transport infrastructure.
“The M62 motorway is the major transport route in this area, connecting Hull and Goole with the wider motorway network and the rest of the UK.”
The plans will now be considered by East Riding Council.
