COF­FEE gi­ant Star­bucks is mak­ing its come­back to Nuneaton – in a for­mer restau­rant.

The firm has made a bid to change the for­mer Eatery Ber­muda Park in St David’s Way into a Star­bucks restau­rant with a drive-through.

Tawny­wood Ltd has made the ap­pli­ca­tion to Nuneaton and Bed­worth Bor­ough Coun­cil for per­mis­sion to carry out alterations to en­able the ex­ist­ing build­ing to be used ad­di­tion­ally as a drive-through cafe/restau­rant, in­clud­ing mod­i­fied ac­cess, re­vised park­ing ar­range­ments and con­struc­tion of cir­cu­la­tory drive through route.

In the ap­pli­ca­tion form it says that the firm wants to en­able the dis­used restau­rant to be oc­cu­pied by Star­bucks as a restau­rant with drive through fa­cil­i­ties.

“As the coun­cil will be aware, this build­ing has been un­oc­cu­pied for a con­sid­er­able time fol­low­ing its clo­sure by the pre­vi­ous en­ter­prise,” the form states.

“The pro­posal seeks to bring the build­ing back into use, for which pur­pose limited ex­ter­nal alterations are pro­posed to the lay­out and ex­ter­nal ap­pear­ance of the build­ing.”

Star­bucks did have a café in Market Place in Nuneaton town cen­tre but it was closed a num­ber of years ago. Ac­cord­ing to the coun­cil, a tar­get de­ci­sion date for the plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion is Jan­uary 2.
