McDonald's Showground restaurant plan allowed

McDonald's has confirmed it will open a "drive-thru" restaurant on the edge of the Lincolnshire Showground by the end of 2024.

The chain was granted planning permission by West Lindsey District Council on Monday.

It is part of a wider development, which includes a filling station, next to the Tillbridge Lane roundabout on the A15.

McDonald's said it would be a "convenient food offering for those travelling along the A15".

A spokesperson said: "It would be ready to open in the final quarter of 2024, creating job opportunities for the local area.

"It also serves as an opportunity for visitors to the Lincolnshire Showground to have a recognised food place during trips to the county’s largest events venue."

The site was sold by the Lincolnshire Showground to a private developer, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service .
