Documents were submitted to planners at the town hall at the beginning of August, and a decision was made by the council today, Tuesday.

There were two separate planning applications submitted to the council regarding the Taco Bell development - one regarding signage for the new addition to the town centre, and the other regarding construction work that will take place.

Following permission being granted to the fast food giant, Taco Bell is set to take up residency at 14 Old Marketplace, a corner plot near the entrance to the Golden Square Shopping Centre.

The planning application regarding construction work reads: "Two double entrance doors to be removed and replaced with one single entrance door and glazed side panel and one glazed shopfront infill panel. 

"A piece of shopfront glazing and cash machine to be removed and replaced with a new section of glazing.

"Ancillary external refurbishment works to the shop front."

As per the decision made by the council, work must begin on the transformation of the site on or before October 17, 2026.

According to the application submitted as part of the planning proposal, the applicant (Blue Bell Foods Ltd.) has applied for Taco Bell signage to be in place at the site until the end of September 2028.

Taco Bell has been contacted regarding an opening date for its newest site.
