MCDONALD'S has submitted planning applications for signage at a former Pizza Hut restaurant in Flintshire. 

The fast food giant has submitted three separate applications to install signage at the restaurant site in Queensferry which Pizza Hut vacated recently. 

There has been local speculation that McDonald's will be moving into the site and closing its restaurant inside Asda in Queensferry. The chain, however, is yet to confirm this. 

However, planning applications submitted this week to Flintshire Council reveal McDonald's plans for the site. 

One of the three applications submitted to Flintshire Council states: "The installation of 3 white internally illuminated 'McDonald's' letterset and 2 yellow internally illuminated 'Golden Arch'."

The other applications relate to road safety signals and the installation of a free-standing totem. 


Earlier this week, The Leader reported that another application had been submitted to refurbish the former Pizza Hut site. 

It states: "Refurbishment of the shopfront with the repainting of the windows, door frames and cladding.

"Minor elevation changes to include removal of doorways, with the installation of a new door, new windows and walls to be rendered to match existing.

"Introduction of 3 cycle racks and patio furniture with associated works to the site."
