Plans for a new Costa Coffee drive-thru café in Flintshire have been submitted.

The coffee chain is proposing to build the new store at the junction of Chester Road and Ponterwyl in Mold.

If approved, the café will be situated on a 0.9-hectare brownfield site next to a busy five-arm roundabout, which leads to a Tesco supermarket.

The proposed site is surrounded by well-known retail chains, including Tesco, B&M, McDonald’s, Aldi, Iceland, and Home Bargains.

A Design and Access Statement submitted with the application notes that the site has “good pedestrian and cycle access” and is within walking distance of the urban area of Mold and close to the bus station.

The proposed building is single-story and will not have an impact on the surrounding area, according to the proposal.

Vehicle access to the site will be from Chester Road and is the “only feasible option,” as advised by highway engineers.

Parking for 23 vehicles, including two accessible spaces and one waiting bay, will be available.

A transport assessment report highlights that the expected ingoing and outgoing trip rates for Costa are 58 inbound and 54 outbound during the weekday peak between 9am and 10am and 41 inbound and 42 outbound during the weekend peak between 10am and 12pm.

The report also estimates that 88-90% of traffic will already be on the network, meaning the development will only generate a 1.5% increase in traffic load.

The report also states that the surrounding road infrastructure is capacity assessed and the development will not affect the performance of the existing highway network.

The new drive-thru will have a single window pay and pick-up system, a patio area for outdoor seating, an order point in the drive-thru lane, and a goods loading lay-by within the site.

The location of the café aligns with Costa Coffee’s vision to provide convenient and accessible coffee options for customers and will incorporate environmentally friendly practices in its operations. Costa Coffee has expressed its commitment to sustainability.

The application is currently in a consultation phase, you can find out more here.
