KFC at Collingwood Centre

This petition had 333 supporters

Please sign this petition against planning permission to build a KFC at Collingwood Centre, North Shields. Planning application 17/01852 and 17/01853.

The application is for a KFC drive through to be built with such close proximity to a number of schools and goes against the Council's and Government's mandate to encourage healthier eating by the pupils in the area. Although a takeaway is not permitted to be built within 400 metres of a school a drive through KFC is not considered a takeaway! This application is for a KFC within 400 metres of John Spence Community High School.

Obesity in children is at an all time high in the UK and particularly in the North East. This food is high in fat and salt, there have also been reports the chicken used is not ethical.

Other problems associated with this build would be the drive through traffic, littering in the local footpaths and the effect on the atmosphere of the area.

Lets get the community together against this to protect our young and the beautiful area we live in.
