Coffee unveils new plans for store in Burnham-On-Sea
Coffee has submitted new proposals for its planned store in Burnham-On-Sea town centre.
South West Coffee has submitted a planning application to extend
the shop front of 30 The High Street, which was previously occupied
by Sanders greengrocers, to allow for external seating.
councillors granted approval for the change of use of the premises
in September, and this new application focuses on the appearance
of the store.
wall of glazing will be opened up during the day, allowing the store
to extend out under the store's canopy. The design serves to improve
the appearance of the shopfront," states the coffee giant in its application.
Costa store will create this through the use of glazing, allowing
customers to look out on to the High Street and will allow passers-by
to see into the store. This will enhance both the building and
the overall street scene context. By relating the shopfront to
the surroundings, the design contributes to the overall character
hopes to open the new cafe early in 2013. Sanders greengrocers
last year and the property has been vacant ever since.
this year, several food retailers in the town aired concerns that
the new cafe would hurt their trade and several called for more
controls to be introduced on limiting the number of cafes in Burnham,
as we reported here.
