Plans submitted at Birstall Retail Park / January, 2024

A full planning application has been lodged to Kirklees Council for a trio of commercial units at Birstall Retail Park.

The application, submitted on behalf of London Metrics DT Limited, is for the demolition of the Frankie & Benny’s and Chiquito buildings, and creation of a drive-through coffee shop, drive-through restaurant and a flexible commercial pod unit suitable for retail, restaurant, café, and hot-food takeaway uses.

The units are expected to create between 65 and 67 full-time equivalent positions, as well as further roles during construction.
