Concerns have been raised over proposals for a pizza store in a town.

Domino’s Pizza is set to open a late-night store in Mold, with the creation of 35 jobs.

But members of Mold Town Council’s planning committee have raised concerns over the opening times for the proposal.

Minutes from a meeting of the committee said: “The committee raised concerns relating to the opening times for the proposal.

“There are residential properties which would be affected by delivery vehicle noises and the sound of the ventilation system motor.

“The applicant compares the proposal with the public houses of the Pentan and Wetherspoons, however this is not comparing like for like.

“The public houses do not have delivery vehicles picking up takeaways.

“The committee asked that the opening hours be amended to consider the residents to 12am at weekends and 11pm during the week.” 

In documents submitted by planning agents Pegasus Group, the company said the store would create 35 full-time and part-time roles.

They said: “The proposed hot food takeaway will operate between the hours of 10am and midnight, Sunday to Thursday and between 10am and 1am on Fridays and Saturdays.

“The proposed store will create approximately 35 jobs.

“The jobs will be part-time and full-time and employees will be sourced locally.” 

Domino’s added that while there is no immediate parking facilities available, there were many within Mold that could be used.

“Overall, it is considered that there is a suitable amount of parking within the vicinity of the appeal site.

“Ultimately, customers and delivery drivers who risk parking illegally would risk prosecution or a fine.”
