Planning application for ‘coffee shop and pizza outlet’ submitted for Atlantic Park site in Bideford.

A new ‘pizza outlet’ could be coming to the Atlantic Park site in Bideford.

A new planning application for the Clovelly Road site has been submitted to Torridge District Council for a ‘drive-through coffee shop and pizza outlet’.

The application by Starbucks and KFC franchisees Amsric Food Ltd is ‘an alternative’ to the permission granted last week for an Aldi food store and Starbucks coffee shop.

The design and access statement said: “The new planning application is in effect a revision to the coffee shop component.”

But a spokesman for Amscric Foods Ltd said the reference to Pizza Hut was ‘incorrect’.

The spokesman said: “The planning application is made on the basis of a new restaurant with takeaway facility falling within Use Class A3/A5.

“Planning permission only relates to the use and the land and not the operator.

“Consequently any use which falls within that classification could operate from the unit.”

The Gazette has contacted Pizza Hut for comment.
