Food retailers have cautiously welcomed a new McDonald’s restaurant near Shiptonthorpe, which the company says will boost the local economy with the creation of 60 new jobs.

Building work has already begun to convert the former Little Chef building and McDonald’s plan to open the franchise restaurant and drive-thru in November.

McDonald’s applied for planning permission to make alterations at the site last December, an application that was approved at the end of March.
