Planning permission for a second McDonalds outlet has been recommended by planning officials at Causeway Coast and Glens Council.
The site is located within the car park of the ASDA supermarket located at 1 the Ring Road Coleraine just off the Lodge Road roundabout. A total of 16 people have objected to the plans which would see the fast outlet built next to the Lodge Hotel.
Whilst officials have signalled that the planning application to be approved, they have declined the fast-food restaurant’s bid to open the drive-thru on a 24-hour basis. Among the conditions attached to the decision is the opening hours.
The report reads:
The development hereby permitted shall only operate between the hours of 6am and 11pm Monday to Saturday and 12noon to 6pm on Sundays. Reason: To protect the amenity of neighbouring residents
The final decision will be made next week.
Causeway Coast Community exclusively revealed the proposals for a second McDonalds outlet in Coleraine last year.
