A new drive-through coffee shop and self storage units could be built on the outskirts of a town.

UA Asset Management has applied to develop the former Parkside Nurseries site on Cromwell Road, at Wisbech.

It says in a planning statement: "The drive-thru unit will be occupied by Starbucks and the self-storage unit will be occupied by Cinch Self Storage.

"The other storage unit is designed to suit a number of different tenants."

The site, near Costa, McDonald's and Tesco, is currently empty and overgrown.

Plans submitted to Fenland Council show the Starbucks on the junction of Cromwell Road and New Bridge Lane, with the two storage units along Cromwell Road.

The statement adds existing trees would be retained and landscaping will be carried out to "enhance the site and provide and maintain screening where appropriate".

It concludes: "It is proposed that this new development will help to complete the regeneration of this vacant site on Cromwell Road and will hopefully become a popular destination for nearby residents to complement the existing facilities nearby and will provide significant new employment opportunities."

A decision is expected later this year.
