FRESH plans relating to a new village pizza takeaway have given a first look at how the shop will look.

Proposals to open a new Domino’s Pizza in Lymm were given the green light by councillors last month.

Now, a new application has been submitted to Warrington Borough Council’s planning department for signage at the former Lymm Indian premises on Pepper Street.

This seeks permission for one externally illuminated fascia sign and one externally illuminated hanging sign, with designs also submitted.

The council’s development management committee gave the green light to plans for the pizza takeaway to open despite residents raising concerns over obesity, traffic, litter and the impact on the street scene.

Letters of objection from seven residents were submitted, while the scheme by applicant DPSK Limited, which operates the Domino's pizza chain, was called in to the committee by ward councillor Graham Gowland.

It is proposed that the takeaway would operate from 11am to 11pm daily.

Seven letters of objection were submitted by residents concerning equipment noise, an increase in litter and anti-social behaviour and traffic.

Another reads: “The proposed use should not be encouraged when there is an obesity crisis in the UK.”

Cllr Gowland requested the application go before the committee due to traffic and parking concerns, waste generated by the unit and signage being ‘suitable for the location on a historic cobbled street’.

Lymm Parish Council also raised issues with ‘extensive’ opening hours and signage.

However, in recommending approval, planning officers said: “The proposed change of use to a hot food takeaway use is considered to be acceptable in principle.

“The proposed use should not have any adverse impact on the character and appearance of the surrounding conservation area and setting of the listed Lymm Cross.

“Adequate measures can be put in place to mitigate any potential impacts on the amenity of neighbouring residential occupiers and the general amenity of the wider area.

“It is therefore recommended that the application is approved subject to conditions, with delegated authority given to the development manager to make non-material changes to planning conditions and reasons as may be necessary prior to the issue of the decision.”
