A NEW KFC drive-thru could be coming to Lake soon.
KFC has submitted a planning application for a 250 square metre restaurant on land behind the Merrie Garden pub, adjacent to the new Premier Inn hotel, off Newport Road.
The plans include 37 car parking spaces, made up of 31 customer bays, as well as drive-thru waiting bays and staff and disabled bays.
The company said approval of the plans would lead to around 50 new jobs being created.
Around 600 residents and businesses in the area were consulted earlier this year, with 52 per cent backing the fast food chain's plans.
KFC's only other Island outlet is in Newport. 
Its former restaurant in Union Street, Ryde, closed back in December 2012.
