A BRADFORD pub could be demolished to make way for a new drive thru Greggs.
An application has been submitted to Bradford Council to flatten the once popular Cross Keys pub on Rooley Lane and build a new branch of the bakery giant in its place.
The plans, by 5apphire Ltd, say the site of the now vacant pub in the Dudley Hill area has been “beset by problems” including fly tipping in recent years, including one incident where almost 400 tyres were dumped on the site.
The application claims there is “no realistic prospect” of the building ever reopening as a pub.
If approved the pub would be pulled down and replaced by a modern, single storey drive thru and car park.
The application says the business would open for 24 hours a day, and could create up to 20 jobs.
A decision on the application is expected in September.
