Plans to demolish petrol station on Durham road and build a KFC there

So replace it with an eyesore? An unhealthy one, at that.

The planning, design and access statement goes on to say: “The application seeks to provide new, high quality development on previously developed land, in a highly sustainable location bringing with it significant social, economic and environmental benefits for the area.”

Environmental benefits? What... Like rubbish all over the place, after people have eaten their buckets of chicken?

It'll add to the traffic on that site, it'll be more pollution from idle cars waiting to enter and leave the site, added to the rubbish and unhealthy food.

Ridiculous...I'd reject it. The only way it'll be approved is 💴💵💶💷💵💵💶

Oh dear, I know the mess that's created by McDonald's at the Wheatsheaf and the rats that are attracted to it.
It will be less competition for fuel in the area as well, believe it or not, they do compete.

Fast food and supermarkets are all over the place and we wonder why we are obese in the west.

There are no others in the area so why not.

That's not a good reason to have one there. It'll cause more bother than its worth.

I wonder if youngsters will think they can use it and play chicken (pardon the pun) while trying to get to it.

I can see why we are obese with all these food shops opening.
There are supermarkets everywhere when in times gone by, we only had small corner shops.
Not surprising then that the UK has a problem with obesity and diabetes like America now.
