Some of you may already be aware that McDonalds have put in a planning
application for a new restaurant building at the Turner Rise Retail Park.
The new building will be next to Go Outdoors and next to Pizza hut.
The car park is 390 spaces and only 4 additional spaces will be added. There
will also be changes to the rear access road to the park to allow for a set
of drive through lanes to be created. The application has received a high level
of objections from residents with the most major concern being extra traffic
in an already highly congested area at peak times.
Martin Goss has “called in” the application so it must go through the highest
level of possible planning scrutiny and the ultimate decision will fall to the planning committee.
We have also made sure Essex County Council are aware of concerns
regarding this application as well as all Mile End Councillors objecting to it.
