Plans for KFC and Costa Coffee in Hemsworth approved

YUM

Plans for a KFC and Costa Coffee on the site of Hemsworth's old marketplace have been given the go-ahead. A total of 81 letters had been submitted in support of the scheme from residents, but local councillor Ian Womersley, who was one of 24 objectors, described the development as a "tragedy waiting to happen", for people living very close to the site. West Yorkshire Police had lodged an objection to the application on the grounds of anti-social behaviour, but withdrew it after developers promised the car park would be gated off to vehicles after KFC closes at 11pm. And committee member Councillor David Jones, who represents Pontefract, said the link between the site and petty crime was "erroneous". He said: "There's about five pubs within 10 to 20 metres of the KFC in Pontefract town centre. "I have regular conversations with the police but they don't report to me that there's any problems on a Friday or Saturday night.
