Aldi supermarket and Costa Coffee drive-thru at Wyberton Fen progressing after positive news from planners





Plans to construct a new supermarket and coffee drive-thru continue to progress after both applicants received positive news from planners.

An Aldi store and adjacent Costa Coffee restaurant have both previously received permission to be built on Swineshead Road at Wyberton Fen, in a growing retail area which is currently home to a Tesco, Lidl, Starbucks, McDonald’s and B&Q.

Conditions attached to Aldi’s successful application included the approval of a surface water drainage scheme before work could begin and the approval of details of the design, implementation, maintenance and management of foul water drainage works before the building could be occupied.

The supermarket has now submitted the relevant paperwork which has met the approval of Boston Borough Council.

“It is considered that the submitted details are acceptable, and will ensure that the site will be adequately drained,” the planning officer’s report concluded, adding the foul water drainage plans would ‘ensure that there will be no unacceptable risk of pollution or harm to the environment or landscape’

Details of Aldi’s plans regarding their landscape schedule and lighting details have now been submitted to BBC and are awaiting approval.

The latest stage of the neighbouring Costa application has seen advertisement consent granted for 18 items, including various illuminated signs, a height barrier, panel banners on the 0.23 hectare site.

“The advertisement proposals will not present a danger or distraction for road users therefore the highways and lead local flood authority does not consider that this proposal would result in a severe impact with regard to highway safety,” a Lincolnshire County Councilo statement said during consultation.

The planning officer’s report concluded: “The proposed signage would not harm visual amenity or public safety and are considered to be acceptable in accordance with the South East Lincolnshire Local Plan 2019.”
