Could Downham Market get a McDonald's and a Starbucks?

Downham Market could potentially get a McDonald's and a Starbucks. 

Plans have been submitted by the chains to erect the two new restaurants on Bexwell Road.

They've been submitted to King's Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council for consideration. 

A supporting statement said that the new restaurant would cater for motorists on the A10. 

"Whilst other motorist services for petrol exist in the wider surroundings, there are limited facilities to take a short break, or to purchase food and drink on the move.

The proposed units, adjacent to the principle road network, are therefore orientated to the motorist"

The plans have received a mixed reaction online. 

One user said:

"I object because of noise, smell, litter and the anti-social behaviour associated with drive-through car parks.

The site is too close to a residential area and a Secondary School."

But another resident said: 

"I wish to support this application as I think it will bring new job opportunities to the area and also open up a new case for a retail park on the outskirts of the town bringing in more people and income to the local economy. Would be very happy to see the future this could bring to town."

Many strongly objected to the plans: 

"I object because of noise, smell, litter and the anti-social behaviour associated with drive-through car parks. The site is too close to a residential area and a Secondary School."
