The Fife Council Central and West Planning Committee has agreed to the proposal to build a McDonalds at the Duloch Tesco Car Park, which Liberal Democrat Councillor for Dunfermline South James Calder voted against.
Liberal Democrat candidate for the Scottish Parliament for Dunfermline, Aude Boubaker-Calder, is angry that councillors from the other parties supported the planning application.
Aude Boubaker-Calder has said,
“Councillor Calder made a sensible motion to reject this planning application. I am very disappointed that most of the councillors disagreed both with him and local residents that this will cause a huge level of traffic problems.
“I really don’t think there should be another fast food outlet here. I think it will cause distress to a number of local residents due to noise and littering as well as the traffic chaos it will create.
“As it is close to a school, this might also contribute to the already high levels of childhood obesity and is a ticking time bomb for the health of our pupils.”
“I’m writing to the Tesco supermarket to ask them to reconsider this project.”
