Plans for a Costa Coffee outlet on Stevenage Leisure Park have been approved by the borough council.

Complete with a drive-thru, the new outlet on the Kings Way leisure park will be sited where the Eastern Corner restaurant used to be, before it was demolished in 2020.

The planning application submitted to Stevenage Borough Council says the development will "contribute towards the overall vitality and viability of Stevenage and represent sustainable economic development".

The council's planning officer said: "It is considered the proposal demonstrates high standards of design in keeping with the commercial character of the leisure park."

Costa Coffee already has outlets in Stevenage High Street, Queensway, 9Yards retail park - formerly the Roaring Meg - and Stevenage Railway Station.
