Peel plans leisure extension to garden centre

Peel has submitted a planning application for five food and drink outlets on Boulevard Business & Leisure Park in Speke Boulevard, Liverpool.

The units will be on a site next to the new Dobbies Garden World which is currently under construction and due to open in September 2011.

The five outlets will comprise of a public house/family restaurant, a fast food drive-through, a coffee drive-through, and two more family restaurants.

Peel said three of the units are already under offer to national operators.

Roger Wheeldon, senior development director at Peel, said: "The proposed scheme will serve the substantial business community in the area which is currently poorly served by modern places to eat and meet. These new jobs and those created at Dobbies will make Boulevard Business and Leisure Park a major employer in the area and Peel hopes that the council will support the plans. If consent is granted, building work will be able to start in early 2012."
