Groundworks are under way as part of a scheme to create a drive-through restaurant in a coastal town.
Work to develop a McDonald's drive-through outlet of the fast-food restaurant chain - to be located on Mill Road in Lowestoft - is progressing.
After plans for a new two-storey McDonald’s drive-through restaurant in Lowestoft were approved in September 2018, diggers were on the site of a former BP garage in Mill Road as demolition work started in January 2019.
In September 2019, the fast-food restaurant chain lodged three Illuminated Advertisement Consent applications to East Suffolk Council as part of a "tandem application" for the disused petrol station on land at Kirkley Rise, opposite the Spring Tide pub, on Mill Road.
These Illuminated Advertisement Consent applications were given the go-ahead by the council under delegated powers in November 2019.
Now, diggers and workmen have returned to the site as the development progresses.
