New photos show the development of a brand new Nando’s in the Victoria Retail Park in Netherfield.
The company began construction of a new facility in the year 2000 on the same land that was previously utilized by Morrisons for parking cars.
Also, work began on a brand new Starbucks drive-thru cafe at the same time as Nando’s.
The conditional planning permission was granted in July of this year for the restaurant as well as a Starbucks coffee shop situated to just to the east of the parking lot close to Victoria Park Way.
Starbucks has opened. Starbucks is already open and created 16 new jobs.
The councillor who spoke earlier, John Clarke, leader of Gedling Borough Council, said: “I welcome anything that can boost the local economy. I’m sure this project will be extremely well-loved.
“Businesses like these contribute to the creation of jobs for our region Not just once the doors are opened, but in the process of building.
“With the near-term developments located at Teal Close coming along, I’m certain that these new facilities will be very well-used in the near future.
“We’re aware that the area is already very busy and we’ll be calling upon Nottinghamshire County Council to further improve the nearby road junctions.”
The plans were presented on Thursday, November 4, for advertising and the approval of an additional sign in the restaurant.
It’s not clear when Nando’s restaurant is expected to open.
A brand new Nando’s restaurant as well as a Starbucks drive-through could be coming to Netherfield after an application to the idea was made.
The major chains would like to establish two new locations within the Morrisons car park that is next on the Victoria Retail Park.
A plan application filed on behalf of both companies outlines the proposed development, if approved will be located at the northern part of the parking lot close to Victoria Park Way.
It would comprise a 348sq meters unit for Nando’s restaurant, and the building of 167 square metres for the Starbucks along with 23 parking spaces for the two locations.
The councillor John Clarke, a councillor for Netherfield and the leader of Gedling Borough Council, has earlier stated that the area could be transformed into a “mini-city” because of the massive development of housing in the town.
Other chains, like Frankie and Benny’s, KFC, TK Maxx and M&S are already operating located in the region.
