The possibility of a new Starbucks in a Bucks town has raised concerns from local residents with objections raised to the latest plans.

Starbucks has re-submitted plans to set up a drive-thru off Sir Henry Lee Crescent, near the A41 back in March 2021.

Dozens of people have now written to Buckinghamshire Council to raise their concerns about the plans.

The objections include worries about increased traffic and anti-social opening hours near the housing development.

The new branch of the coffee chain would be open seven days a week and listed its proposed opening hours as 6am until 10pm each day.

Emily Pitwell wrote: "The location of this is poor thought out and almost laughable.

"There is one way out of the estate, and by putting a drive though in, you're increasing the traffic in and out of the estate and it will be causing a nuisance to the residents in the estate.

"You're proposing the building directly opposite homes, with hours that are boarding on antisocial.

"As a home owner, there is the right to have quiet enjoyment of my home and this planning application threatens that."

Dean Johnston wrote: "The area does not need a large chain coffee shop when we have smaller independents in the area.

"The small development would also not benefit from this heavy traffic flow, noise pollution & general pollution.

"The bats roosting in the trees next to the Bicester road would also be affected."

Lou Blaylock wrote: "We are a housing development not a retail park.

"We already have two independent coffee shops within walking distance I totally object."

Ella Robertson wrote: "Exemplar Park is such a wonderful place to live due to it being a quiet, friendly estate - we do not need a chain coffee shop right in the entrance of our lovely homes.

"I worry this could decrease our house prices, cause noise and disruption to most residents (being a small estate), traffic which will cause chaos (there is already too much traffic and with only one entrance or exit to our homes I think it is ridiculous to increase this problem).

"Until you have lived in Berryfields then you will not understand that the junction is constantly just waiting for accidents to happen and is not safe for more central Aylesbury traffic. "

There have also been a number of letters of support for the application.

Robyn Adams wrote: "I have no problem at all with this.

"Could provide more jobs in our community, snacks for drivers who commute for hours on end near a road that is always shut with accidents.

"Do I think it will affect the other businesses? No, two different brands, two different types of consumers, two completely different menu and access styles."

A design and access statement submitted with the application states: "The proposed drive thru’ Starbucks will represent a complementary addition to the changing Berryfield street scene and will enhance the area by providing a local facility for the employment area.

"The proposed development will also generate a number of job opportunities for local people.

"The proposals will deliver a number of economic, and social benefits."
