A GLASGOW church has hit out following a planning application for a drive-thru cafe.

Gorbals Parish Church shared a message on Facebook.

It read: "There has been little local consultation and no one with any real interest was informed on time, the plans are likely to be approved on the nod.

"Gorbals Parish Church has submitted its objection as we believe that the resulting pollution, litter and increasing traffic are to the detriment of the community.

"Around the corner, G5 Cafe is locally run and serves freshly-made food, coffee and home baking.

"They know their customers and are an asset to the community.

"If Jesus was meeting people in the Gorbals today, we think you'd find him around the corner at G5 and not driving through Starbucks with a disposable cup in his hand."

Glasgow Times:

This comes after the Glasgow Times reported yesterday that Euro Garages Ltd submitted plans to build a drive-thru cafe in the car park behind the Crown Street Co-op.

So far, no objections have been submitted on the Glasgow City Council website and the last day for comments is Monday, May 22.

Euro Garages Ltd was approached for comment.
