CONSTRUCTION has started on McDonald's in Murwillumbah and it is scheduled to be completed by November.

Demolition of the old Norco building at 230 Tweed Valley Way, South Murwillumbah, started yesterday.

"At this stage, we have commenced demolition of the existing shed as per council approval," a company spokeswoman said.

She said the company was looking forward to working with the local community.

"McDonald's restaurants are owned and operated by local businesspeople, employ local residents, support local sports and community groups, and are very much a part of the community fabric," she said.

"The restaurant will provide a welcome boost to the local economy, introducing up to 100 full-time, part-time and casual positions, and nationally accredited training opportunities for crew members."

The Murwillumbah McDonald's faced a controversial start, with some residents arguing against an outlet in the town.

However, the restaurant was approved early last year under 124 special conditions.
