AN appeal has been made to the Planning Inspectorate after a planning application to build a coffee shop at a Trowbridge retail park was refused.

The application to build a Costa next to Currys and PC World at Spitfire Retail Park in Bradley Road, submitted by Premiere Coffee Ltd, was refused in January as it would have led to the loss of nine car parking spaces and there were no parking spaces included in the plan.

But the agent behind the plan, Walsingham Planning, has appealed against the decision in which it states that the car park is never completely full and that people would not visit the retail park just to go to Costa, so it would not add more traffic.

To make comments on the proposal, email with the Inspectorate reference APP/Y3940/W/17/3170053.
