Retail plan could create 100 new jobs in South Bank, Middlesbrough
MORE than 100 jobs could be created at a planned new restaurant and pub.
McDonald’s and pub chain Marston’s have agreed to open businesses at a three-acre farmland site near the Tesco Extra store, off the A1085 at South Bank, Middlesbrough, if planning permission is granted.
Developers the Oakgate Group has applied to Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council to develop the project.
The Wetherby-based company provided a statement on the planning application which said: “ The proposal represents a significant investment into the South Bank ward, which is one of the most deprived wards in the country and is a regeneration priority.
“The proposal would create a significant number of new jobs in an area where unemployment levels are high. This would contribute towards the delivery of a thriving local economy.
“The site is located in a hugely sustainable location, is not at risk of flooding and would not result in the loss of or harm to any heritage assets or important wildlife habitats.”
The McDonald’s fast food restaurant would employ about 65 full-time and part-time workers.
The pub will employ up to 50 staff, of which about 20 positions will be full-time.
A new access road will be built from the Trunk Road. The existing farm access will be closed.
The development will also include 111 car parking spaces.
Redcar and Cleveland Council’s planning committee will rule on the application at a future unspecified date.
