Proposals to change the opening hours of a McDonald’s restaurant in Sheffield so it can be open 24 hours a day have been submitted to city council planners.
The application for the restaurant, on Coleridge Road, Darnall, says the change is proposed ‘to ensure that the restaurant is able to better meet the needs of its customer base and enhance the overall efficiency of the restaurant’.
In the same documents it says that most custom during extended hours will be from passing trade rather than bringing extra people in to the area so there will not be extra traffic or noise.
It adds: “Furthermore, a high proportion of customers who use the restaurant during night time hours are often taxis, shift workers, delivery vehicles and emergency service crews, none of whom are prone to causing anti-social behaviour or significant noise.”
The restaurant currently has permission to be open from 6am until midnight every day. If the plans are approved, deliveries will still be made between those times and 10 jobs will be created.
