Plans have been formally submitted to open the Isle of Wight’s first Burger King, Isle of Wight Radio can exclusively reveal.

As previously reported by Isle of Wight Radio, if approved, the restaurant will be located on the Coppins Bridge retail park, open between 6am-midnight. Up to 50 new part-time and full-time jobs could be created.

A facility for a drive-thru are also factored into the plans.

The plans also include a new 24-hour gym, owned by The Gym Group – in the former Maplin electrical store, creating six jobs.
