Developers are proposing to build a petrol station, two drive through restaurants, operating 24 hours a day, a shop, six industrial units and 171 parking spaces on the green field adjacent to East Riding community hospital.
The Liberal Democrat ward and town councillors in Beverley are inviting their residents to express their views, after a Lancashire based developer submitted a planning application to build two 24 hour drive through restaurants , a shop, 6 industrial units and 171 car parking spaces on the field adjacent to East Riding community hospital on Swinemoor Lane in Beverley.
The developer, EG Group, who have franchise agreements with Burger King, Starbucks, Greggs and Subway have said that they will only purchase the land if their plans are approved by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council beforehand.
This is one of the most significant planning applications in Beverley since the cattle market became a Tesco in 2002.
The Burger King and the Starbucks are drive thru's operating 24 hours a day 7 days a week, just yards away from people's bedroom windows.
Not only is this another green space destroyed, but the Swinemoor Lane roundabout is already busy enough, especially at peak times, without yet more traffic trying to get into this new development.
Liberal Democrats believe that Beverley is already over developed and that such a development would add massively to an already congested Swinemoor Lane area.
Sign the petition below to tell East Riding of Yorkshire council if you object to this.
