McDonald's is looking to open a drive-through restaurant on the Buttington roundabout in Welshpool.

Provisional planning permission for a fast-food restaurant was submitted at the end of March, but now with the full plans submitted, it can be confirmed it is McDonald's who is looking build the drive-through.

Within the supporting statement, it says: "The company has recently been undertaking a thorough review of its portfolio of restaurants and is seeking to increase its representation in certain key locations. At the same time, McDonald's has implemented a major brand refresh, both in terms of its product range and the design and fit-out of its restaurants. This application forms part of that overall strategy."

Welshpool Town Council objected to the provisional plans for the restaurant back in April for a number of reasons; including the fact that school children would have to cross a busy road to access it.
