VERDICT On Drive-Thru Proposal Is Put Off

26 January, 2021 | Food and Drink

GLASGOW councillors postponed making a decision on a plan for a drive-thru Starbucks coffee shop on Alexandra Parade.

The council’s planning committee delayed coming to a verdict at their meeting today saying more information was required.

The drive-thru is proposed for the grounds of the 24-hour BP filling station between Craigpark and Lloyd Street, and would include an external seating area.

Thirteen objections have been made, including from Dennistoun Community Council and local councillors.

Concerns include increased traffic, litter, over-provision of coffee shops, inappropriate opening hours, and encouraging car use during the climate emergency.

However, city officials say that the development complies with planning policies. They are recommending that councillors approve it.
