The new units will be in a 397 square metre ‘pod’ next to the M&S Foodhall, which opened in 2019, replacing 31 car parking spaces.

Costa would move into the biggest space with Greggs taking over one of the other units.

The lost car parking spaces would be replaced elsewhere in the retail park.

There will also be two outdoor seating areas built outside Costa and Greggs.
