TWO 'drive-thru' restaurants have been given the green light at a Barnsley business park.

Barnsley Council officers have given approval for the development by Stainsby Grange Ltd, which also includes splitting Blakemore's warehouse into four separate retail units.

The site, off Bleachcroft Way opposite B&Q, comprises of two existing commercial units.

Stainsby wanted the approval so it has the 'flexibility to maximise the chances' of securing a new tenant should Blakemore's not renew its lease and ensure the unit remains viable.

Plans for two drive-thru restaurant/coffee shops will be built on a service yard next to Blakemore's and 35 car parking spaces created.
