Breaking News ! Proposals for a new McDonalds in Bodmin have been given the green light by Cornwall Council. The council has given planning permission for the restaurant to be built in a part of the car park at Bodmin Retail Park, on the outskirts of the town centre. After concerns were raised by residents nearby about the proposed development, conditions to the planning permission requiring the restaurant to have an effective litter management plan in place and opening hours restricted to 6am until midnight were imposed. The development is also required to have a security barrier put in place to prevent access during hours where it is not open, in addition to restrictions on the noise level of machinery used to build the restaurant and measures to minimise the impact of odour from the site on nearby residents. Leigh Frost, Cornwall Councillor for Bodmin St Petroc’s said he was delighted at the news, especially in light of resident’s concerns being accepted. He said: “It’s great news that more businesses are looking to invest in Bodmin, with the announcement of McDonald’s being granted planning permission for a new restaurant and creating more jobs for local people.

“I’m really pleased that McDonald’s have recognised local residents concerns regarding 24-hour opening, litter management and sound, and as part of the application there will be some landscaping of the site to create a natural sound barrier to minimise the impact.
