The McDonalds restaurant at Mayfield could be re-built and go 24 hours if plans before Newcastle Council are approved.

The proponents want to knock down the existing restaurant on Maitland Road in stages and construct a larger one which also provide additional access from Dora Street.

However, residents are worried about moves to allow the restaurant to operate 24 hours, with concerns about an increase in anti-social behaviour, traffic and noise.

Council will hold a public meeting to discuss the plans tonight.
