There are to be some changes at Westway Cross retail park. McDonalds is preparing to move to larger premises in a slightly different location. The restaurant and its “drive-thru” facility have been popular since they opened and don’t seem to have had an adverse effect on other food outlets close by. There is still a long way to go before it opens, it is barely a building site as yet, but I expect efforts will be made to ensure it is ready to serve shoppers during the pre-Christmas rush. Two other food outlets opened at Westway Cross recently, Costa Coffee and Subway, and they seem to be holding their own, along with Boots which also has a range of food available. A larger restaurant may mean more jobs but an application has been made to extend its opening hours through the night which some residents fear will lead to more litter and noise.
