The developer said the site and its outlets would provide a suitable place to “take a break from the work environment”.

It said: “They will serve the employment areas and add to the attractiveness of the area to staff and visitors by providing a convenient place to pop out from work for beverages or snacks, to keep fit or to get the car fixed.”
