A drive-thru, a restaurant and 12 electric car charging bays could be making their way to the site of a closed-down restaurant in Great Yarmouth.

Since Frankie and Benny's pulled out of the town last year, the former restaurant on Mitchell Drive, Cobholm, has stood empty.

Now BP aims to transform the area with two smaller restaurant sites, one with a drive-thru, and adding 12 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to the grounds.

(Image: Newsquest Archives)Plans submitted to Great Yarmouth Borough Council state that if granted, the site will see the installation of six EV stations with canopies to provide 12 charging bays.

The planning documents also state the estimated average charging time will take between 20 and 30 minutes, offering customers' 'on-the-go' charging.

BP Pulse also laid out plans to demolish the existing plant area, build a substation and alter the car park's layout.

The proposed scheme would provide parking spaces for 40 cars, and the existing access to the site from Jones (GC) Way would remain unchanged.

A decision on the plans is expected by mid-July.
