McDonald's Camden could soon be open 24-hours

McDonald's Camden hopes to extend opening hours

Locals could soon get a late night nugget fix in Camden after a show at a civic centre or a visit to one of the town's pubs

McDonald's has submitted a development application to Camden Council in the hopes of opening the restaurant 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Argyle Street restaurant currently closes at 11pm.

The Camden Local Planning Panel will vote on the proposal at a meeting next week.

Camden councillor and Argyle Street business owner Eva Campbell told the Advertiser in August she couldn't understand why a 24-hour McDonald's was needed in Camden.

"I can't think of any rational reason for a 24-hour McDonald's in Camden at all," she said.

"It is in close proximity to houses and shop-top flats as well."

The application states the new operating hours were proposed in response to "increased customer demand".

The document also states that planning experts believe anti-social behaviour would not increase however noise levels would experience a small increase.

McDonald's applied for 24-hour operating hours when the restaurant first opened more than 10 years ago, however Camden councillors voted against it at the time.
