The submission made to Braintree District Council, outlines plans for a new development of land at the corner of Gershwin Boulevard and Hatfield Road B1389, known as Plot 18 of the wider Gershwin Park mixed-use development.

The plans include a new McDonald’s drive-thru restaurant, a drive-thru Costa, as well as three new retail units, an electric vehicle charging station and 112 car parking spaces.
