EG Group submits plans for 24-hour drive-through coffee shop and restaurant off the M62 near Goole

Developers applying for planning permission for two 24-hour drive-through units on the site of a former car dealership off the M62 near Goole say they could create 45 jobs.

A location plan for the drive-through coffee shop and restaurant

EG Group wants to knock down the former Peugeot car dealership off Rawcliffe Road, Airmyn, and build a drive-through coffee shop and restaurant.

The developers have agreed to a long leasehold of the site off junction 36 of the M62, subject to planning permission, according to documents online.

The site lies within the Glews Services area, which includes a Shell filling station, Spar, Premier Inn Hotel and McDonald’s drive-through.

Moshin and Zuber Issa’s EG Group operates more than 6,000 forecourts globally. In February the billionaire brothers agreed to buy Asda’s forecourts business in a deal worth £750m.

The submission to East Riding Council says there is "little realistic potential for reoccupation" of the vacant car dealership, adding: "These jobs will provide opportunities of employment to local people.

"Employees will benefit from a dedicated training and employment programme."

It adds: "The site is strategically located at Junction 36 of the M62 and sits along the A614. As such, the development will make use of the high volume of vehicle traversing the surrounding road infrastructure, attracting passing motorists as opposed to drawing shoppers away from the existing centres."

The proposal include 48 car parking spaces.

The same developer submitted plans earlier this year for a drive-through coffee shop and restaurant, convenience store, six units for industrial and warehousing uses and 171 car parking spaces on the field next to East Riding community hospital, on Swinemoor Lane, in Beverley.
