KENTUCKY Fried Chicken hope to open a drive through restaurant - employing up to 34 full and part time staff -on the outskirts of Wisbech.
The company hopes planners will agree to them moving to a vacant area of the former John Gross Ford garage on Cromwell Road after the site owners failed to attract a major retailer.
Two years after consent was given, Peak Top Properties has given up the chase for a retailer and hope Fenland planners will agree for Kentucky to take over the vacant plot.
The company believes it has met with the planning tests of not affecting any nearby residents, not creating extra highways problems and offering adequate parking.
If approval is given Peak Top hope it will complete the re-development of the site that also includes Top Tiles and a car wash.
Kentucky says its current shop in the town centre will not be affected by the new store since it is an "inline unit" and not a drive through facility.

Peak Top says KFC believes Cromwell Road is a separate area of the town with a separate market "and has projected that the two restaurants would operate successfully without adverse effect on either facility."
The new restaurant will have the choice of drive through or dining in and the developers say it will be a "modest building utilising what is an underused section of a partially developed site.
