Dominos – 39 West Street planning application re-submitted

Perhaps we shouldn’t have been surprised by last week’s re-submission of the 39 West Street ‘Dominos Pizza’ takeaway planning application by Geo. & R. Carrell Properties Ltd. The cynical timing of this application follows an approach often used with contentious applications, sneaking them in during the holiday period when the public are normally distracted.

Result! 39 West Street – The Domino’s Pizza planning application is turned down.

New and revised applications linking East Street to The Pallant

Updated 29/10/2020 – Clarification of ‘supported living‘ application. Just like buses, planning applications sometimes come in threes.

HBC handling of public comments on Planning Applications

Back in December when we were still celebrating the Development Management Committee (DMC)’s decision on the original Domino’s application for 39 West Street, we reported that the developer had re-submitted the application.
