“A new drive-thru McDonalds is set to be built in East Devon.
Plans have been submitted to bring the fast food giant to the region as part of a scheme that would also see a roadside service and petrol station built next to the A30.
The site at Straightway Head Junction, next to the Daisymount roundabout, near Ottery St Mary, would see the proposed McDonalds restaurant include seating for customers and 47 car parking spaces, involves HGV and coach parking, and the petrol filing station would contain five pumps and a forecourt with 34 car parking spaces.
Access to the site will be from the B3174 London Road which runs between Ottery St Mary and Rockbeare.
The application says that the amount of development proposed for the site is appropriate and that the McDonalds offer is entirely consistent with many food offers up at down the country. …”
