SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Welshpool Town Council will object to plans for a drive-through restaurant on the outskirts of the town.

The planning application is on land at Rhallt View and Tan Yr Allt View at Buttington roundabout and is widely predicted on social media to be for a McDonalds providing 12 job opportunities.

At a planning committee meeting the councillors voted to object to the application on the following grounds:

a The site is outside the Local Development Plan boundary.

b The development would result in the loss of two residential units.

c. The location of the site is not accessible by pedestrians who would have to cross a trunk road with the site close to an industrial estate, residents and more importantly a High School and new Infant/Junior school.

d. The egress from the site on the Oswestry Road is close to the roundabout and is considered a highways issue.

e The site location with the Town Centre close by does not meet the Town Council Climate Change Policy encouraging cycling and walking.
