McDonalds and Costa coming to Snodland
Under plans recently submitted to Tonbrisdge and Malling Borough Council Snodland and Halling could soon be home to a drive through McDonalds and Costa aswell as some commercial units. The location of the site is close to Holborough lakes, opposite the Tarmac office and would run from the Holborough roundabout all the way to Peters Bridge roundabout.
Although there is fierce opposition from local residents, citing increased traffic and pollution and noting the fact the site is next to a desginated conservation area the plans would bring a further 370 jobs to the local area.
Reagrdless of the final decision it is very indicative of just how much Snodland has grown in the last 20 years and how continued development of the area is helping to keep property prices buoyant in a very troubled market.
