Domino’s Pizza opens at the Willow Brook Centre

Posted on Thursday 25th October 2012 at 1:33 pm by SH (Editor)

Domino's Pizza - now open at the Willow Brook Centre in Bradley Stoke.

Domino’s Pizza has opened at the Willow Brook Centre in Bradley Stoke, creating 35 jobs.

The local pizza delivery expert has taken a 1,400 sq. ft. unit that was formerly Simpson’s Fish & Chips in the Town Square.

Willow Brook Centre Manager Scott Lahive said:

“We are really pleased to welcome Domino’s which will be great for visitors to the centre and also serve the local community with its delivery service. It’s great to see another food operator so keen to move into the centre.”

Domino’s Manager Perry Ghandi said:

“We opened a little earlier than planned which we’re all really happy about. It’s only our first week but we’ve had a great response from the Bradley Stoke community so far.”

Opening hours of the new store are advertised as “10am to late”, seven days a week.

Domino’s Area Manager Salil Sahni confirmed to The Journal that the store would be trading until 5 o’clock in the morning. The firm’s home delivery vehicles will park on the Tesco garage forecourt to avoid any potential disturbance for residents of nearby properties, he added.

Domino’s Pizza set to open in Town Square

Posted on Tuesday 17th July 2012 at 11:04 pm by SH (Editor)

Domino's Pizza.

Domino’s Pizza is planning to open at the Willow Brook Centre in Bradley Stoke, creating between 25 and 30 new jobs.

Negotiations are now in the final stages and due to complete this month, with an opening proposed for November 2012.

The local pizza delivery expert will be taking a 1,400 sq. ft. unit in the Town Square that was formerly Simpson’s Fish & Chips.

Willow Brook Centre Manager Scott Lahive said:

“We are really looking forward to welcoming Domino’s which will be great for visitors to the centre and also serve the local community with its delivery service. It’s great to see another food operator so keen to move into the centre.”

An earlier attempt by Domino’s to open an outlet at the Willow Brook Centre was scuppered by a South Gloucestershire Council planning committee in 2011, when it refused the firm permission to change the designated use of a “vacant” garage on the corner of the centre’s access road to class A5 (hot food takeaway).

The arrival of Domino’s will restore the centre’s retail occupancy level to 100%, following Poundworld’s recent occupation of the former Peacocks unit.

Footfall at the Willow Brook Centre is due to top 4.5 million per annum by the end of 2012, adding up to 17.5 million since the centre opened in October 2008.

End of the road for Willow Brook pizza plans?

Posted on Thursday 17th February 2011 at 8:30 am by SH (Editor)

Domino's Pizza

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.”

Councillors to inspect proposed Domino’s Pizza site

Posted on Tuesday 1st February 2011 at 10:46 pm by GB (Reporter)

Domino's Pizza

South Gloucestershire planners are to visit to the proposed site of a new Domino’s Pizza store this Friday (4th February) at 10:20am following the submission of a planning application to convert a garage in a corner of the car park at Bradley Stoke’s Willow Brook Centre.

The application was referred to South Gloucestershire Council’s Development Control (West) Sites Inspection Sub-Committee by Cllr Peter Tyzack in order to “allow members to see the site and consider parking provision, the impact upon neighbouring residential properties and the potential conflict between pedestrians and vehicles”.

Issues that Committee members are being asked to consider include whether or not:

  • The location of the building is appropriate for the proposed use in the context of the Town Centre.
  • The proposed development would result in an unacceptable environmental impact to the detriment of the residential amenity of the occupants of nearby dwellings from noise, smell, litter and disturbance from activity.
  • The proposed development would itself cause or exacerbate anti-social behaviour to the detriment of residential amenity and the amenity of the Town Centre.
  • The proposed development would compromise the car parking capacity in the context of a fully occupied Town Centre; and whether or not the development would compromise pedestrian safety.
