Winchester City Council approved plans earlier this year to transform the site from a restaurant to a restaurant and takeaway.
An application has been submitted by McDonald’s to install the company’s signage at the premises along with a new golden arch graphic and to build a new entrance at the site.
But some locals have voiced their disapproval after lodging an objection. Tamsin White said: “Fast food restaurants lead to excess rubbish - which McDonald's never takes responsibility for - unhealthy eating, and antisocial behaviour into the late hours.”
Mikaela Godley, from Fareham, said: “Considering Whiteley is already experiencing issues with boy racers around the roundabouts, I would really hate for a McDonald's to be built in this area when it's not necessary.”
