Charlton McDonald’s has met the wrecking ball this week with demolition underway for a new store.
Planning Permission was given for the replacement two-storey structure in May 2021. Back in 2019 a plan to replace the fast-food branch with a drive-through Metro Bank branch was on the table, approved, then later dropped.
Changes with the rebuild include allowing “the drive-thru lane to be reviewed. Whereas before there was not sufficient space to implement a side-by-side lane, the new layout and design allows for the existing parallel process is to streamline and formalise the ordering process during peak trading times without the need to have members of staff outside of the building.
This will also assist in reducing the length of the potential queue, by increasing the speed of preparing the orders and thus reducing congestion within the site during those busy periods.”
Last week plans went in for another drive-through directly opposite the retail park approach road on the Asda car park site.
