Plans submitted by McDonald’s relating to a “new restaurant” at a Wiltshire retail park have been given the green light.

Wiltshire Council has approved two applications from the fast food chain for signage at Hathaway Retail Park in Chippenham.

At the time of writing, a separate proposal for the reconfiguration of the unit’s shopfront to include relocated entrance doors remained under consultation.

Reports included in this application say the plans are for a “new proposed McDonald’s restaurant” at the current Bensons for Beds store.

The approved plans include the installation of an illuminated sign displaying the word McDonald’s alongside yellow golden arches on the building and the retail park’s estate sign.

Planning permission was granted in January to change the use of the unit to a mixed restaurant and takeaway.

The latest plans, which suggest McDonald’s intends to open a branch at the retail park, split residents when they were submitted.

Some were excited about the idea of another takeaway in the town while others raised concerns about increased traffic.

At the time of the applications, McDonald’s said it was unable to comment.

The chain has been approached for comment on the approval of two of its three applications.

Bensons for Beds did not respond when approached for comment on the plans.
