DOUBLE Drive-Thru Development Proposed For Glasgow Site

9 July, 2021 | Food and Drink

PLANNERS are being asked to approve two drive-thrus — a coffee shop and a restaurant — on vacant land at Ibrox.

The development would be at Junction 24 Business Park, Helen Street at Edmiston Drive.

The coffee shop unit would be a 24-hour Tom Hortons outlet. An operator for the restaurant has not been confirmed.

Permission for a standalone drive-thru Tim Hortons was given three years ago for the same site.

A supporting document submitted with the planning application states: “The proposal would see the re-use of a long term vacant site and would provide facilities that would serve the surrounding businesses and employees within the area.”

It continues: “The proposed development will seek to create links to the existing footway network on Helen Street, and within the Junction 24 Business Park, in turn, offering connectivity to local bus stops / services, surrounding employment and residential areas.”

“In addition, links to the neighbouring retail offers will be established, with an appropriate level of cycle parking also provided for staff and customers.”

Thirty-nine car parking spaces would be included.

Canadian operator Tim Hortons has expanded rapidly in the UK over the past few years and now has 12 outlets in Scotland.

The application is pending consideration by Glasgow City Council.
