A fast-food chain giant has had plans approved to open a new restaurant in a busy retail park on the Bath Road.

McDonald's is set to move into a recently empty unit at the Bishop Centre in Taplow.

Previously Evans Cycles, the store closed earlier this month, with the branding and signage having since been removed from the store.

On December 16, McDonald's put in an application to change the use of the unit to include flexible provision for "commercial, business and service" and/or "hot food takeaway". 

Further plans also requested permission to add an abstract golden arch vinyl to the front windows, along with external alterations to the rear elevation and additional equipment.

McDonald's also requested permission to display two internally illuminated signs and new graphics.

The plans were put to Buckinghamshire Council, with the latest proposals being approved on June 13 with several conditions including advertisements being maintained and lighting not exceeding certain levels.

Buckinghamshire Council said that the proposed signage would not "lead to an adverse impact upon the character and appearance of the area" and that the plans are considered a "fair and reasonable balance" "between the interests of the community and the human rights of the individuals concerned".

Speaking on the parking in the area, the council spokesperson added: "It is considered that the use of this unit of the building for the proposed uses would not materially increase the level of parking required."

McDonald's has been contacted for comment.
