PLANS to install a number of signs associated with the soon-to-open Starbucks in Ulverston have been put forward.

A proposal to open a drive-thru Starbucks at Beehive Business Park was given the green light in September.

The new store will have inside and outside seating areas, car parking, accessible spaces, toilets and a drive-thru lane.

The plans includes 18 vehicle parking spaces, including two disabled spaces, and parking spaces for six bicycles.

Fresh plans have been submitted to South Lakeland District Council to install various illuminated and non-illuminated signs including: six fascia signs, two menu boards, three directional signs and a six-metre totem pole.

According to the planning application, advertisement permission for the signs is being sought until 2027.

Earlier this month, permission for extended hours at the new Starbucks were refused.

The changes would have seen the planned branch open between 6am and 10pm on Sundays and bank holidays.

But South Lakeland District Council turned down the application on the grounds that the proposed hours would have resulted in 'harm to the amenity of existing and future neighbouring occupiers' owing to 'vehicle movements, customer noise, air handling units and staff arrivals early morning and late evening'.

The current permitted opening hours of the Starbucks branch are 6am to 10pm between Mondays and Fridays and 7am to 6pm on Sundays and bank holidays.

The Starbucks will be located next to the soon-to-open drive-thru Greggs which is set to launch later this year.

Barrow is also set to get its first Starbucks after a planning application was given the green light earlier this month.

The drive-thru branch of the popular coffee chain is to be situated in the car park of Asda in Walney Road.
