A new Greggs drive-thru could be coming to Barrow.

Trinity Enterprise Centre Ltd have lodged plans with Westmorland and Furness Council to build a new Greggs drive thru at Cocken Villa on Walney Road, which could bring 20 full time equivalent jobs to the area.

The proposed drive-thru is located on a site which currently contains a Travelodge, a Dominos Pizza and a Costa Coffee outlet.

According to plans, the proposed Greggs will be open from 5am to 10pm from Monday to Saturday and will have operating hours of 7am to 6pm on Sundays.

Planning documents state: “The application site has lain undeveloped for a significant period of time. It is of no benefit to the surrounding community if it remains vacant.

“The surrounding area is becoming much more developed particularly in light of the new police station.”

According to planning documents the proposed site, is accessible to a ‘significant local employment base’, commuters using the A590, and people staying at the nearby Travelodge.

“The site is now highly accessible and strategically located and lends itself to a use which has good synergies with passing traffic”, plans add.
