PLANS for a sixth Greggs outlet in Colchester have moved forward after signs for the new site were put before planners.

There are already five branches of Greggs across the city, with on located at Stane Retail Park, two located in the city centre, one in Stanway and another in St Christopher Road.

Now the bakery chain has submitted plans for signs to Colchester Council for a drive-thru outlet at Colchester’s Northern Gateway Leisure Park.

Last year it was revealed Greggs and Wendy's would be coming to the development. 

Work began on the £65 million leisure park in March.

The development has already secured a 20-lane bowling alley from Hollywood Bowl and a Puttstars indoor golf centre.

There will also be a Cineworld and a Travelodge with 90 rooms, while restaurants Wendy’s and Greggs will now each boast a drive-thru on the site.

The 200,000 sq ft leisure development is located within Colchester’s Northern Gateway, south of junction 28 of the A12.

Colchester Council will have the final say on the plans.
