Plans for a new drive-through Starbucks coffee shop and McDonald’s on the edge of Downham Market look set to go ahead, despite town council opposition.

McDonald’s is seeking full planning permission for the new businesses in Bexwell Road, near the roundabout with the A10.

The development could create more than 80 jobs and planning officers are recommending West Norfolk Council approves the application on Monday, June 1.

Downham Town Council has said the development was not in keeping with the area and could disturb residents.
