A new McDonald’s drive-through restaurant has been proposed for a prominent site in Glenrothes.
The chain wants to create a new freestanding, two-storey restaurant at the junction of Bankhead Park and Woodside Way, near the Bankhead roundabout on the A92.
It is understood the proposed development could create more than 75 jobs.
The firm said almost all the new roles would be recruited from the local community, with the exception of the management team.
Car parking is included in the plans and access to the site would be via a junction on to Bankhead Park.
A spokesman for the company said it would be the second drive-through in the town, and urged planners to support the application.
“The design and layout of the proposal is appropriate in the area,” the spokesman added.
“Natural and neutral colours and materials will be used on the building and throughout the scheme to ensure the site integrates easily with the surroundings.”
McDonald’s said permission was already in place for a drive-through at the location on the outskirts of Glenrothes, next to the main north-south commuter route.
The company said it had recently been carrying out a thorough review of its portfolio of restaurants and was seeking to increase its presence in some locations.
“The site represents an appropriate location for a drive-through restaurant, which will be well placed to offer refreshments to passing customers and those in the surrounding area,” the spokesman added.
