A new Tim Horton's could be on its way.

A planning application has been submitted to South Tyneside Council for the former Pizza Hut unit at the Boldon Entertainment complex, off Abingdon Way.

The plans, which were formally registered on March 28, aim to create a ‘Tim Hortons drive thru restaurant and cafe’ at the site.

This includes the installation of a drive-thru lane and associated engineering works, such as alterations to car parking and servicing arrangements.

In addition, minor changes are planned for the building, including new cladding.

“A quick service restaurant with a difference, Tim Hortons are all about great food, coffee and sweet treats served with a warm and friendly approach.

“With over 4,000 stores and two billion cups of coffee freshly brewed worldwide, there has never been a better time to join Tim Hortons.”

A decision on the proposed Boldon store will be made by South Tyneside Council following a period of consultation.
