McDonald's returning to ASDA superstore in Thames Way, Gravesend

A new McDonald's restaurant is moving in to a superstore to replace its cafe.

Plans for the fast-food giant to move back into Asda supermarket have been given the green light.

Gravesend residents will be seeing the Golden Arches in the future as they go for their weekly shop when McDonald's returns to the Thames Way store, years after leaving.

In February the council said it was satisfied with the plans for the return.

Further applications for the erection of four Golden Arch illuminated panels and logos were submitted to the council earlier this month.

However, no decision has been made on these yet.

Some residents have said bringing back the fast-food chain would be 'a mistake' and that it 'didn't work before'.

ASDA spokesman Joe Furniss said: "We’re always looking for new ways to innovate for our customers and are working with a number of partners, such as Just Eat, McDonalds and Timpsons across our stores and online.

"We are pleased that plans for a McDonalds in our Gravesend store have been confirmed and customers can expect to see this open towards the end of the year.”
