The site will include a drive through too, for those who want a Starbucks on the go.

The store's address will be Southern Loop Road Aylesbury, HP180WH.

Berryfields Parish Council have raised strong objections to the site.

They said:

This area has been earmarked for development

"The PC is concerned about possible light pollution from this installation.

"It is out of keeping with local residential vernacular and within approximately 10 meters of neighbouring established cottages on A41, and all houses in Exemplar Park.

"The PC has not been consulted in respect of the main build.

"The PC objects on the grounds of light pollution, potential distraction to traffic on A41 and light pollution to close neighbouring properties."
