Fried chicken-lovers will discover next week whether a new KFC is to be built opposite a retail park in Great Yarmouth.

An application has been submitted to Great Yarmnouth Borough Council to build a new restaurant close to the Gapton Hall Retail Park and near Tesco and Frankie and Benny’s, which will be occupied by the fast food giants.

The new site would be located off Mitchell Drive and is planned to include a drive-through lane - a first for Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants in the borough.

The application is up for decision next week, with officers recommending the borough council’s planning committee give it the green line at its meeting on Wednesday.

If the plans are approved, the franchisee has also agreed with the council to ensure the branches on Regent Road and Gorleston High Street remain open for at least five years from the new site’s opening date.
