Domino’s Pizza’s plan to open a takeaway in Portishead threaten other High Street businesses, according to objectors to the proposal.
The firm chain is seeking planning permission to turn a takeaway and flat into a two-storey site for it to use.
Portishead Town Council discussed the application on July 6 and raised concerns about the idea.
It said: “While a regulated business would be welcomed to the High Street as the unit downstairs is already a business unit, we object to the opening of the takeaway until 3am.”
Several letters of objections have been submitted against the proposal with people fearing other firms will lose out to Domino’s.

The writers felt the business would help the local community and create more jobs in Portishead. Domino’s expects 35 staff would be taken on, should it open in the High Street.
