Plans revealed for new McDonalds on local industrial site
The new restaurant would be situated next to the recently-opened KFC drive-thru on the same site.
If approved the proposal is expected to create more than 65 new jobs.
This is now the second application McDonalds have submitted to build a drive-thru restaurant on the industrial estate, after the first was refused in favour of KFC and Starbucks stores.
The application reads: “McDonald’s are looking forward to opening a store in this area, as the previous scheme did not progress. This site provides an excellent opportunity to move to the area.
“The proposal represents sustainable development of a prominent vacant site, which will provide a range of local jobs to the area.”
McDonalds have stated that the restaurant will facilitate up to 97 visitors, and would include a 38-space car park with two accessible bays and six cycle spaces.
