McDonald’s on the menu
WORKMEN are on site to prepare the ground for East Cleveland’s first McDonald’s restaurant - bringing 65 jobs to the area.
The development, in Skelton, is under way and will be part of a new retail park close to the Asda supermarket on Pheasant Fields Lane.
Also planned for the area is a Marston’s pub, a B&M store and other retail units - while an Aldi store is also proposed for land adjacent.
A McDonald’s spokeswoman has now confirmed work has begun on the drivethrough restaurant.
She said: “We can confirm that we are opening a drive-through restaurant on Pheasants Fields Lane, in Skelton.
“This new opening will create at least 65 new jobs and provide significant investment for the local community. “
