Local Residents Against McDonald's

Belper, Derbyshire

October 1996

The campaign of "Belper Against McDonald's" (BAM) is gaining momentum and support. A preliminary meeting to consider McDonald's proposed development on the A6* will take place at Ripley Town Hall on 15th October 1996. BAM are encouraging local residents to attend. There have already been several letters in the local paper, the Belper News, most of which have been opposed to the plan. BAM are collecting names on petitions.

* McDonald's have applied for a store at the Orangery (a listed building), halfway between Belper and Matlock on the A6.
