A plan to build a new McDonald’s drive-thru has now been submitted and on the first day got 11 letters of objection.

The fast food firm wants to open a take-away on part of the car park at Morrisons in Cleveleys.

Neighbours say the site is unsuitable since it will cause more traffic problems at the car park and the nearby roundabout at Amounderness Way, plus litter, smells noise and disturbance.

However some people have written in support saying it would create jobs and bring more people to the area.

The application to Wyre Borough Council, which appeared on the council's website after one for the signs due to a validation error, would see a two-storey eat-in and drive -thru restaurant built near the existing petrol, station on the site, and close to Osborne Avenue.

It would have a children’s play frame and would create up to 65 jobs. Some existing trees would be removed but McDonald’s says in the application noise smells and litter would be kept to a minimum.

Neighbours have also objected to plans for illuminated signs which they say would shine into their homes at night and also disturb local wildlife.

Cleveleys MP Paul Maynard has said he would be concerned about the effects on traffic along with disturbance to neighbours.
