Formby Labour MP Bill Esterson said he would be keen to hear what residents think about plans to build a fast-food restaurant and drive-through at site of the old bungalow and Kelletts garage on Altcar Road opposite Tesco.
An application has been submitted by Kings Parrot Food to demolish the existing buildings at 89-91 Altcar Road and replace them with a two-storey restaurant and drive-through.
The site includes the vacant bungalow on the corner of Altcar Road and the bypass and the neighbouring garage and car wash.
Bill Esterson is appealing for Formby residents to let him and Sefton Council know their views.
Bill said: "These proposals are for a substantial development in a prime location off Formby Bypass and within the footprint of the existing industrial park.
"But as ever, I am interested in knowing if this is a development that the wider community supports. Is this something the people of Formby want?
"That is why I am urging people in Formby to let me and Sefton's planning department know what they think of this development. Are you in favour, or do you have concerns about any potential increase in litter or the impact on traffic?
"It is the views of the community that matter to me and these are what I will reflect."
Bill said he had concerns about the impact of fast food restaurant on other businesses within the town.
Bill said: "We have some excellent local businesses here in Formby that really deserve our support. Do we need another fast food restaurant? What impact will it have on existing businesses here?
"We should be supporting local restaurants and making sure that they can survive the financially tough period many of them are currently going through.
"Residents and businesses need to inspect this application and raise any concerns in advance. The applicant and the planning officers need to address these concerns before any decision is made."
