Plans for Costa Coffee in Bingham approved - despite strong opposition
A COSTA coffee shop will open in Bingham despite more than 1,500 residents signing a petition against the chain coming to the town.
Council planning officers at Rushcliffe Borough Council have said yes at meeting to the shop opening at the empty Odd Bins unit in Eaton Place, at the entrance to Bingham’s precinct.
They recommended that planning permission should be granted subject to conditions which included opening hours of 7am until 6pm on weekdays, 8am until 6pm on Saturdays, and 9am until 4pm on Sundays.
Bingham is currently home to four coffee shops and much of the opposition to the plans for a new chain shop has come from people who say they value the independent trading of the town. A total of 1,606 people signed a petition against the plans.
