Plans to create a drive-thru shop in Aberdeen have gone back to the drawing board.
Costa Coffee had been lined-up to operate the shop which would be its first drive-thru in the North-east.
Development company West Coast Estates submitted the proposals to change a vacant office site on the corner of Abbotswell Road and Wellington Road into a drive-thru coffee outlet.
But it has emerged the company has withdrawn its plans to “liaise” with the community before returning with another application.
Iftikar Mian, director at West Coast Estates, said: “Whilst we have taken the decision to withdraw the application, we remain fully committed to delivering a Costa drive-thru on this derelict site.
“The withdrawal importantly provides additional time to liaise with the Community Council and other stakeholders on the proposals. We look forward to submitting an updated application shortly.”
It comes after work started on a Starbucks drive-thru in nearby Wellington Circle. Around 30 new jobs will be created when it opens.
