Officials at South Gloucestershire Council have recommended that a planning application to turn a garage in a corner of the Willow Brook Centre car park into a Domino’s pizza outlet should be refused.
Members of the Council’s Development Control (West) Committee, who inspected the proposed site two weeks ago, will this afternoon decide the fate of the application at a meeting in Thornbury.
In a report to the committee, planning officers have recommended that the application be refused on the grounds that:
“The proposed hot food takeaway would introduce new retail frontage and activity into an area of the town centre that would not adequately cater for such activity in respect of visual amenity and vitality.”
“The cumulative impact of the activities associated with the proposed use as a hot food takeaway would have a detrimental impact upon the residential amenity of the occupants of nearby dwellings.”
Bradley Stoke Town Council and a number of local residents had already lodged similar objections to the scheme during the consultation phase. The Town Council’s Planning Committee also claimed that there is “already adequate provision of this type of business in the local area”.
