FAST food giant McDonald’s has withdrawn plans to build a new restaurant in Leominster.

Their proposals would have seen the Golden Arches installed at the land at Morrison’s car park off Baron’s Cross road developed.

But bosses have now pulled the two-storey drive-thru scheme after two years in the planning system.

However, the American company says they are committed to the town and will work with Herefordshire Council to find a suitable location.

“We can confirm that the planning application has been withdrawn,” a McDonald’s spokesperson said.

“We remain committed to the town and will liaise further with the local authority and the local community to identify suitable locations.”
