Plans for a KFC fast food restaurant in Cookstown have been recommended for approval by Cookstown District Council.

At the monthly council meeting on Tuesday night, a planning representative said the new plans for the fast-food restaurant included the demolition of the old existing building on the former site of Rodney Cole car sales and a new smaller premises built.

UUP Cllr Trevor Wilson said he was “still concerned” about the impact of the restaurant would have on those living close by, particularly a disabled resident whose bedroom runs adjacent to the premises.

The planning official said they were satisfied with the report Environmental Health had compiled and that opening hours would be restricted to alleviate problems.
