IT is the last chance for residents to have their say on Costa Coffee Drive-Thru plans near Worcester.

The coffee shop chain revealed plans for a new drive-through in Powick on Malvern Road earlier last month.

If plans are given the green light, a total of 15 full or part-time jobs will be created along with 25 car parking spaces, including two disabled areas, four electric vehicle charging bays, and a waiting or delivery bay.

Access is proposed through a one-way system through the Crown Inn pub car park.

Vehicles can exit via Malvern Road or the new road being developed as part of a new residential development opposite.

The last date for residents to have their say on the Costa Coffee Drive-Thru plans is May 11.

Since the plans were announced, many have objected to a drive-through coffee shop in Powick, fearing there will be an increase in crashes.

The plans for the building, which could be on the vacant land next to the Crown Inn Pub, have been branded 'utter madness' by some residents.

Jane Croft, resident, said: "This application is utter madness on a road that is incredibly busy and unsuitable for drive-through traffic.

"There have been several accidents and a death on this road over recent weeks, and the speeding along that stretch has become the norm."

"Come on, we don't need another one!

"We want a Burger King!"

But not everyone was critical.

Simon May wrote: "Can't beat a Costa! Fantastic news."

In response to the backlash, a spokesperson for Costa Coffee said: "We can confirm that a planning application has been submitted for a Costa Coffee on Malvern Road in Powick, Worcestershire. 

"However, at this time, we have no further information to share on the potential development."

The nearest Costa Coffee Drive-Thru is at Strensham Services on the M5 motorway.
