We are pleased to see that our client Tim Hortons has received planning consent for the redevelopment of an existing Pizza Hut restaurant at Bentleybridge Retail Park, Wednesfield to provide a Tim Hortons drive thru restaurant.

As Tim Hortons are legally permitted to occupy the store without the need for planning permission, the proposals simply comprised the addition of a drive thru lane. We therefore prepared a short Transport Statement to support the application, which examined the key transport related issues such as parking provision and servicing arrangements. As the proposals did not result in any change of the use of the unit and there was no significant change in floor area, it was not considered that there would be any material change in primary trip attraction.

The planning application was granted permission on 23rd March 2021, with further support provided by Williams Gallagher (Planning), Beyond (Architecture) and Aspect Landscape Planning.
