Coffee shop could come to retail park

VISITORS to a Shripney retail park may soon be able to enjoy a cup of coffee.

Costa Coffee may soon be setting up shop on the Arun Retail Park.

A planning application by UrbanEdge Architecture on behalf of the BBC Pension Trust to install a new pod unit has been submitted to Arun District Council.

Documents accompanying the application state: “The proposed new tenant is Costa Coffee. The proposed new Costa Coffee, along with the new Marks and Spencer Simply Food and Next stores will provide a distinctive and high quality modern retail offer to Arun Retail Park and this part of Bognor Regis.

“Costa Coffee will provide a valuable addition amenity to those visiting the retail park, creating an opportunity for them to enjoy a coffee as part of their visit to the retail park. It would also provide an additional amenity to those working in the area.”
