Plans submited for Alcester McDonald's

By Connie Osborne Thursday 31 January 2013 Updated: 31/01 15:22

THE FORMER Little Chef restaurant near Alcester is set to become a McDonald’s.

The fast food chain has submitted a planning application to Stratford-Upon-Avon District Council, to create a new drive-thru restaurant on the Oversley Mill Services site, off the A46 Alcester Highway.

If the plans are approved, around 65 full and part-time jobs will be on offer.

A McDonald’s spokesman said: “We are excited about the prospect of investing in Alcester and will be working with the council on our plans. We are constantly looking for suitable locations that meet our criteria and have chosen this site due to its convenient location on the A46.”

Coun Mike Gittus, who represents Kinwarton ward, said he supported the application as it continued sustainable use of an existing fast food site.

“McDonald’s are a first class employer, have a high duty of care to their customers and have a worldwide brand as a support for their business.”
