An application has come forward to build a new drive through restaurant on land at Lichfield Road next to the Newhall Farm Inn.

If the plans are approved, the new Costa branch could create 15 full-time jobs, the application submitted to Cannock Chase Council stated. A planning statement said there was a “recognised commercial demand” for the roadside service at that location.

A previous application proposing construction of a two-storey 41-bedroom hotel was rejected by Cannock Chase Council. The decision was appealed, but the appeal was dismissed in 2008.
