MORE plans for Droitwich's Sainsbury's and Costa development have been revealed.

The controversial 'business park' was given the green light by Wychavon District Council planning department last year and now more plans have been teased for the Copcut Rise site.

The new park will include a Sainsbury's supermarket, a Costa Coffee drive-thru, two industrial units, parking spaces and electric vehicle charging points.

How the new Costa will look at the proposed Copcut Business Park.

New plans submitted by Hinton Properties show how the developers plan to divide the 130 parking spaces proposed for the site.

Initial plans had outlined the park as having eight electric vehicle charging spaces, which have now been increased to 19.

There will also be 20 accessible car parking, 21 motorbike parking and 22 cycle parking.

Plans also show how the team will construct the work on the site, including exit and entry points, and keep building materials safe. 

Residents derided the plans for the land between Roman Way and Copcut Boulevard, with more than 140 objections lodged with the district council before the decision was made in July 2023.

Many said they would not have bought a home nearby if they knew about the plans for Copcut Business Park.

The new Copcut Rise estate off Roman Way in Droitwich consists of more than 740 homes and was approved by council planners a decade ago.

The committee first voted on whether to reject the plan, which was lost, and then agreed to it with seven votes to three and three abstentions.    

The original planning permission from 2013 included space for a neighbourhood centre, which included shops, community facilities, an emergency services post and land for employment to accompany the homes.

The business park will create around 175 full-time jobs in a wide range of retail and commercial roles.

The Costa Coffee Drive-Thru will also have cafe seating, and there will be 58 parking spaces for both the coffee shop and Sainsbury's Local, including eight ultra-rapid charging spaces.

Cars will enter the business park from Copcut Boulevard using an existing junction, and new pedestrian and cycle access will be provided from the Copcut Rise development.
