New drive-through McDonald’s planned on edge of Barnsley
Written by Rother Radio News on 02/11/2020
Plans for a new drive-through McDonalds off the Dearne Valley Parkway have been submitted.
The fast food giant has submitted plans to Barnsley Council for the new branch at Birdwell, which is already home to Costa, Dunkin Donuts and Taco Bell.
The restaurant would be situated between the Dearne Valley Farm pub and carvery, and the Car Supermarket.
The site, part of the redevelopment of the former Rockingham Colliery, is close to the M1 J36, and just off the Dearne Valley Parkway.
If approved, the restaurant would be the sixth branch in Barnsley, and will create 65 jobs.
A planning document states: “The management team are trained to monitor the car park consistently, to ensure that customers who cause any undue disruption or noise are asked to leave the premises immediately, or if necessary, the police will be alerted.
“Further to this, the restaurant operates an extensive digital CCTV system with external cameras to monitor and deter anti-social behaviour.
“McDonald’s is committed to tackling litter in as many different ways as possible. It is company policy to conduct a minimum of three daily litter patrols, whereby employees pick up not only McDonald’s packaging, but also any other litter that may have been discarded in a 150m vicinity of a restaurant.”
