MAJOR plans have been revealed for a new McDonald's restaurant near Glasgow.

The fast food firm has submitted a proposal to create a new £4million drive-thru eatery at Borland Drive in Larkhall.

The plans - which would support up to 120 new local jobs - have been resubmitted after the company withdrew their application in December 2023 following feedback from South Lanarkshire Council.

Now, a fresh planning application has been submitted to address some of the issues raised by the local authority.

The proposals comprise a modern freestanding single-storey McDonald’s restaurant with a drive-thru lane, car parking, landscaping, and associated works, including customer order displays.

The entire development space is 377 sqm and will include approximately 100 covers, indoor and outdoor, for diners to eat their meals within a relaxed modern environment.

It will also include 53 parking spaces, including two accessible spaces, five motorcycle spaces and five electric vehicle charging points (one of which will be accessible).

There will also be eight cycle parking spaces.

Andrew Crewther, Senior Acquisitions Surveyor at McDonald’s Restaurants Ltd, said:“We are pleased to have reaffirmed our commitment to delivering new investment in Larkhall, having resubmitted our application for a new single storey drive-thru restaurant capable of accommodating 100 sit-in diners.

“The resubmission follows an extensive review of our proposals following feedback from South Lanarkshire Council and we are pleased to have presented our updated application to the local authority.

“In addition to delivering substantial inward investment for the town, the new restaurant would promote more sustainable travel among the local community by improving access to McDonald’s restaurants.

“From the round of consultation associated with our original application last year, in which over 240 formal representations were made in support of our proposals, we have been enthused by the strength of feeling towards our plans in Larkhall and look forward to them being brought forward in the coming months.”
