Papa John’s submits application to remain in town

The pizza chain plans to open a second store in the town

Papa John’s has submitted an application to remain in Burgess Hill.

Its current premises in the town, which can be found in the Martlets Shopping Centre, is set to close to make way for the town’s redevelopment.

Developer NewRiver has confirmed the takeaway chain’s application for a new premises is due to the redevelopment.

The pizza takeaway service is seeking full planning permission to move into Station Road.

The address has previously been used for financial and professional services.

The plan includes changing the premises to a hot food takeaway, with internal and external alterations.

The application has received two objections so far.

Hercules Naude, manager of Queens Crescent Dental Practice in the town, said he is concerned about the storage of commercial waste bins.

“We have limited space in the court yard and it is already overcrowded with all the bins,” he said.

Papa John’s can also be found in the Martlets Shopping Centre.
