New ‘drive-thru’ McDonald’s and Costa outlets could be opening in Newmarket.

Detailed plans have been submitted for a two-storey McDonald’s and single-storey Costa building opposite Tesco and adjacent to the new Wickes store at Willie Snaith Road.

The site would include drive-thru lanes, patio areas and 39 car parking spaces and eight cycle spaces.

A planning statement submitted with the full planning application said: “The proposal follows the successful redevelopment of the adjacent Tesco food retail store and the recent planning permission for a Wickes store, and is a low-key consolidation of development in this locality.”

It added: “The company has recently been undertaking a thorough review of its portfolio of restaurants and is seeking to increase its representation in certain key locations.

“At the same time, McDonald’s has implemented a major brand refresh, both in terms of its product range and the design and fit-out of its restaurants. This application forms part of that overall strategy.”

Two people have been killed in a collision on a road near Newmarket.

Fears have been raised that Suffolk may have a systemic problem with how children’s homes are run after a third establishment was given a poor Ofsted rating in the last 10 weeks.

Jennifer Pearson from Felixstowe claims she had dog mess shoved through her letter box, her tyres slashed, and even had people spit at her – leaving her youngest daughter in tears.

Sixteen people were rescued from rising water after four cars and a bus got stuck in high tide on The Strood crossing at Mersea Island.

A community close to the Essex Suffolk border has been left shocked and saddened following the death of a pedestrian.

The heart of two communities shone through as well-wishers - including an MP - rushed to help people injured in two serious falls.

Suffolk may have enjoyed an almost frost-free winter so far, but the big freeze descended on one town this weekend and so did scores of visitors enticed by the ice.
