Plan­ning sought for Mcdon­alds drive-in

BLACK­LION SITE NEAR TWO SCHOOLS

Bray People - - ABOUT GREYSTONES -

MCDON­ALDS have submitted a plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion for a drive-through at Black­lion.

The pro­posed site is close to both Greystones Ed­u­cate To­gether and Gaelscoil na gClocha Liatha. The planned Church of Ire­land sec­ondary school will also be lo­cated in the same area.

‘ This devel­op­ment would ex­pose chil­dren from the age of five on­wards to per­ma­nent ad­ver­tis­ing of fast­food,' said Red­ford Park res­i­dent Mal­colm Oak­ley who is con­cerned about the plans. ‘ The State has a duty of care to ed­u­cate par­ents and chil­dren with re­gards to healthy eat­ing.'

Per­mis­sion cur­rently ex­ists on the site for a fit­ness and leisure cen­tre as part of the Black­lion Cen­tre with shops in­clud­ing Spar and Lidl.

Any sub­mis­sions on the mat­ter must be made in writ­ing to Wicklow County Coun­cil within five weeks of Jan­uary 18, the date of the ap­pli­ca­tion.
