Thetford restaurant to get a facelift

PUBLISHED: 11:39 08 August 2011

Thetford’s McDonalds restaurant could undergo a facelift under new plans submitted to Breckland Council.

Three planning applications have been submitted to “freshen up” the exterior of the branch, on the Forest Hill Retail Park.

The plans include a new customer order display and a canopy to the rear of the building, where all orders are taken by staff in the kitchen.

“This will speed up the time for making up the meals and thus reduce the amount of time cars are waiting in the ‘drive thru’ lane,” a report supporting the application states.

All the signs will be replaced to create a “contemporary feel” and the makeover will have an al fresco theme.

Breckland is due to make a decision on the applications by mid-September.
