McDonalds Drive Thru

A popular fast food chain intends to announce their plans for a new drive-thru in East Kilbride at a community event next week.

McDonalds is opening a new £4m drive thru at Lindsayfield, EK which will create 120 full time and part time jobs for the area. Following issues with planning previously, the company are now ready to resubmit their plans, this time engaging with the community further first.

The new development comprises a modern freestanding single storey McDonald’s restaurant with drive-thru facility, car parking, landscaping and associated works, including customer order displays. The entire development space is 371 sqm and will include 97 covers for diners to eat their meals within a relaxed modern environment. It will also include 35 car parking spaces and 14 cycle spaces.

Residents in the area can learn about the plans for the proposed drive-thru restaurant at the drop-in event at St Vincent de Paul’s Catholic Church, on 29th March 2023, between 3pm and 7pm.

A spokesperson from McDonald’s said: “After careful consideration following the withdrawal of the previous application, we are pleased to be bringing forward revised plans for a new restaurant at Morrison’s, Lindsayfield at East Kilbride.

“If approved, the development will deliver significant investment of around £4 million into East Kilbride. It would also create over 120 new jobs in a range of full and part-time positions.

“We look forward to meeting the local community which will help gain valuable local knowledge and feedback to help shape and inform the final proposals which we hope to submit as a planning application in the near future.”
