Costa and Subway planning fresh Scunthorpe outlets on M&S retail park with 30 jobs
Two well-known national firms - Costa and Subway - are planning to set up on the outskirts of Scunthorpe
They already have outlets in the town centre.
Plans have been lodged with North Lincolnshire Council for a drive-through restaurant and a restaurant unit with access roads, car parking, servicing areas and landscaping on the proposed retail park housing a new M&S store.
The applicants are Simons Developments Ltd, Costa Ltd and Subway Realtry Ltd.

Development is planned to the rear of the Trent Valley Garden Centre, off Doncaster Road.
The Costa Coffee drive through is said to represent "one of a growing number of the company’s out-of-centre orientated formats which are designed to complement the brand’s traditionally strong high-street portfolio, which includes a Scunthorpe Town Centre unit."
The other proposed unit will be occupied by Subway, which sells a range of hot and cold sandwiches for consumption on and off the premises.
The retailer already operates an equivalent sandwich shop in Scunthorpe town centre and it is understood the new facility, if approved by planners, will complement the existing one.
It is thought 30 people will be employed as a result of the proposals.
North Lincolnshire Council planners will welcome comments from members of the public up to April 1.
A decision is not expected to be made by the council before mid-May.
