McDonald’s has had plans to revamp a Wiltshire retail park unit approved.

The fast food giant submitted several proposals to make alterations to the Bensons for Beds Unit at Hathaway Retail Park, in Chippenham, in March.

Two of these planning applications, which involve the installation of illuminated signs displaying the word McDonald’s, had already been given the green light by Wiltshire Council.

Now a third application, seeking permission to reconfigure the shopfront to include new, relocated entrance doors, has also been approved.

McDonald’s did not confirm it would be opening a branch at the retail park when asked but documents in the application say the plans are for a “new proposed McDonald’s restaurant”.

In January the council approved plans to change the use of the unit to a mixed restaurant and takeaway.

While the idea of a McDonald’s at the retail park has divided residents and councillors, property owners Aegon UK Property Fund Ltd has previously said the flexibility of a restaurant would enhance the site’s “vitality and viability”.

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 its three applications.

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