Under the plans, the restaurant will provide seating for 140 customers and a play area for children while the interior will have a "distinct modern feel".

It is expected to create 35 full-time and 30 part-time jobs.

If given the go-ahead, this will be the third McDonald's in the town and the second drive-thru.
