Planning Alert: Starbucks Coming to Mile End

A Starbucks is Born (Mile End Mix)

Soon, as you exit Mile End tube, you may find yourself getting a caffeine hit from all the coffee in the air as Starbucks is opening under the Green Bridge opposite Costa.

Whilst the shop is a "done deal", changes to the design of the shopfront require formal advertising consent and you might want to comment on them.

Personally, I think it is a pity that Mile End Road is filling up with mundane chain coffee shops and supermarkets, and would have preferred an independent business such as an italian restaurant to augment the fairly limited range of decent dining places we already have. Nonetheless, the (presumably significant) rent will provide useful income to the King George's Field Charity Board who administer Mile End Park.
