However, Costa Coffee has confirmed that it would be interested in the drive-thru location. The benefit of the drive-thru is for residents on their way to work. It’s not shared how big this drive-thru would be or the number of people that would be employed.

While there are some who would like the Chase Farm housing development to remain village-like, most of the residents are excited to see more conveniences close to their homes. The area needs some development and for many, this is an exciting thing to see.

However, there are concerns that the businesses wouldn’t be successful. Other local pubs have closed down due to lack of patrons. There’s a fear that this will happen here. However, the office space and Costa Coffee locations could prove to be the most successful.
