The Domino’s effect

A PLANNING application by Domino’s Pizza to move into premises at the bottom of Westbury Hill is causing concern.

As our picture shows, the former Johnsons Dry Cleaners shop is in a busy spot for traffic and pedestrians, and hold-ups are a regular feature.

The zigzags and double yellow lines are an attempt to minimise congestion. But a pizza takeaway, it is said, will cause people to stop for short periods to order or pick up food.

Delivery vehicles will have to stop outside and parking space will be needed for Domino’s motorised scooters (though the shop is actually only yards away from the main car park).

Councillor Alastair Watson, who is opposed to the proposed ‘change of use’, is asking for the support of residents, including being prepared to voice their concerns at a meeting in Bristol on December 9th.
