Fast food chain KFC has revealed plans to increase the size of one of its Doncaster branches - but the proposals have been met with upset by some residents.

The chicken restaurant wants to extend its drive-thru branch on Sprotbrough Road and has submitted plans to Doncaster Council asking to build a single storey extension.

But some local residents are fearful the extension will create further traffic problems in the area, with many diners already having to queue on the busy Sprotbrough Road on occasions to get into the premises and car park.

Lorraine Tolley said: "Why is it necessary to increase its size? The traffic in and out of it is already horrendous."

Karen Shillam Frost said: "I've opposed the application. Ridiculous. They don't need to expand the store, they need to make a different entrance. The traffic at that junction is already dangerous enough."

And Lisa Gratton said: Lisa Gratton "I objected to the KFC proposal - traffic at that junction is dangerous enough."

Doncaster Council has yet to make a decision on the scheme. People wishing to object to the plans can do so at the link HERE

The chain has a number of restaurants in Doncaster, including a newly opened branch in the town centre on High Street.
