Well it would certainly save us the trip to Newhaven McDonalds for that quick munchie fix!
For some reason, I still won't believe it till I see it. As for the outrage (of there being a McDonald's in the sacred town of Lewes), just you wait till we no-deal brexit and open ourselves up to deep US "investment", we will have McDonald's stores everywhere along with missile silos in every village.

Why are they building a ruddy McDonald’s? In my opinion, it’s an establishment committed to raising childhood obesity rates in every town where it has a restaurant. Build something like an Italian deli that will serve the residents well and be aesthetically pleasing. Preposterous proposal in the first place.

Just hope it's big enough or they won't be able to cope.

Ronald McDonald could walk among us Lewes residents and remain virtually undetected.
This town is full of clowns.......just in case you didn't grasp my original comment.

@Deedoid - I think the parents may have to take a little responsibility in the size of their kids (medical grounds excepted).

As a point of pedantry, this is not a planning application, it's just a pre-application enquiry - a finger in the air to see what the local planning authority would make of the idea.

This will not happen. I am making a formal objection, as is my husband. It will break something that is very special about little Lewes, especially for people like us who have moved and invested here, and lower the value of property in general.

Wow, I really thought "Jennifer" would have been more supportive of the idea.
To be fair, Jenny from the block, if you swapped your fancy meals out at Cote and went for a Maccy D's instead, it would easily offset the potential loss in property values down Wisteria Lane. You're welcome, I won't invoice you for the financial advice on this occasion.

Poor Jennifer - moves to special little Lewes then objects to a proposed Maccy D because it will (allegedly) lower the return on her investment. 'This will not happen' - how arrogant can you get?!

To: the person who mentioned Côte. It is a chain, mass market catering outlet, not a restaurant. It employs cooks not a chef. It is not to our, or anyone in society's, standard. Why does anyone, who knows how a restaurant should be, use such places?

Jennifer, I too have missed you. Your patrician tones ring through your posts and thrill me to the marrow. Believe me, I have no untoward intentions and am content to worship you from afar.
