The plans, due to be discussed by Ipswich Borough Council’s planning and development control committee this morning (Wednesday, July 1), have been recommended for approval.
It would make Burger King the 12th retailer on the park, alongside KFC and Pizza Hut on the same site.
The restaurant chain had considered other areas, such as Ipswich’s Buttermarket Shopping Centre and the former BHS and Co-op – but was looking for somewhere with drive-thru capability.
If given the green light, it could also create between 30 to 40 new jobs in the area.
