PIZZA Hut looks to open a new branch in Birchwood Shopping Centre.

Birmingham-based developer CS2 Chartered Surveyors is seeking planning permission from Warrington Borough Council to open an outlet of the national pizza chain in the unit currently occupied by Regis hairdressers.

The branch, which would be used for takeaways and deliveries rather than eating in, would create five full-time and 20 part-time jobs.

If permission for a change of use is granted, Pizza Hut would open from 11am to 11pm daily.
