An application to build a second drive-thru KFC restaurant in Stevenage has been approved.

All but one of the councillors attending Stevenage Borough Council’s planning committee meeting last week backed building the fast-food store at the Roaring Meg Retail Park.

The store would create up to 50 jobs and be located in the southern part of the park, next to the entrance and exit on Monkswood Way.

It would open from 6am to midnight seven days a week.

Councillor John Lloyd was the only member to vote against the plans.

He said: “The last thing I would want to see as I drive past the retail park is a large dead, fat American.

“I think it is absolutely awful and if it is not toned down I will reject it.”
