A meeting took place on Tuesday between the Northern Ireland Planning Office and concerned residents of east Belfast.

Tuesday, 25 August 2009

They have been campaigning against plans for a new drive-through restaurant in Ballyhackamore.

The plans place the restaurant in the heart of a residential community.

Local MLA Naomi Long has said approving this development would set a worrying precedent.

She said: "If this gets approval, there’s virtually no street corner anywhere in Belfast – or indeed in Northern Ireland – where you couldn’t put a drive-through restaurant. It’s that simple.

This is right beside residential properties, so I think everyone recognises the importance of the decision that needs to be made by the planners."
