Costa Coffee drive-thru opening next spring on Birmingham New Road
A new drive-thru Costa Coffee will be built along the Birmingham New Road creating 17 jobs.
It will be built at the junction with Spring Road on land next to The Forty Four Club in Lanesfield, Wolverhampton.
The club is selling the land to help raise funds to invest back into facilities.
Midlands-based developer Deeley Properties, in partnership with Ziran Land, won backing for the project from Wolverhampton Council.
Funds will be used to support the club including its bar and function room, as well as snooker, crown green bowls, darts and a shooting range.
The Forty Four Club was founded in 1944, by prominent Wolverhampton business leaders and now has around 240 members.
The permission will also see money donated to local outdoor green spaces.
The development will create five full and 12 part-time jobs, and work is expected to begin in September with opening in spring 2021.
Andrew Brazier, of Deeley Properties, said: “This new unit will be a welcome addition to the local area and is situated on one of the main routes between Wolverhampton and Birmingham and will prove very popular both with people using the road network, but also locals.
“The land is not used at present but we have been able to realise considerable value for The Forty Four Club to help it improve what is a well-loved facility used by generations of people from the local community.
“We work across the retail sector throughout the UK, creating new units for a range of end-users.
"To have brought this forward from concept, through planning and delivery, for the benefit of all involved, is really pleasing.”
