For the third time Domino’s Pizza is planning to set up in Penarth – this time in Stanwell Road

The Domino’s Pizza, the international take-away franchise chain, is considering – for the third time – setting up in Penarth.

The American chain  – which even sells its take-away pizzas in Italy – was originally considering setting up at the former Blockbuster Video store on the corner of Hickman Road and Windsor Road.  The firm also looked at setting up at what is now the Mint & Mustard premises in Windsor Terrace.

The former Cloggs shoe shop may become a Domino’s Pizza outlet

Now Dominos has put in a planning application to set up a Pizza takeaway at what was the Cloggs shoe shop (called “My Shoe Box” )at  5B Stanwell Road .

The planning application is for “change of use” of the premises from a Class A retail outlet to a Class B Food and drink outlet. There would be external alterations and a new ventilation and extraction system installed. A new customer entrance door would be installed in the existing entrance doorway

Although customers can collect Domino’s Pizzas in person, the bulk of its pizzas are delivered by car or motorcycle.

Penarth Town Council’s planning committee has said it has no objections to the scheme.

The final decision on the application will be made by a “delegated” Vale of Glamoran Council planning officer

  1. There’s already a severe problem with parking outside this premises. Their delivery vehicles are only going to make a bad situation even worse.

    • Philip Rapier says:

      Welcoming Restaurants and Takeaways as a policy has meant Penarth continues to thrive where other areas of the Vale (including Cowbridge) are not so fortunate these
      Pizza and Sandwich chains are amazing even in times of austerity.
      They defy most economic indicators as we continue to buy more takeaway and less frozen.
      Anyone who can turn a lump of dough into earning enough… er…. dough to become a Global Business selling a product at typically five times the cost of the equivalent pizza one may easily purchase in Waitrose and store in ones own freezer is a marketing genius. Frankly they should be negotiating Brexit with the Prime Minister.
      I must go now as one needs to jump in the 4×4 Ranger and catch Waitrose before they close . ( we are getting frightfully low on quinoa,olives and sun dried tomatoes)

    Yum yum!

  3. Peter Church says:

    Is there any news on the following units in Penarth that all have been vacant for ages:
    Monty Smith
    Robert Smith
    Jalfron Indian
    Penarth Pets
    Avalon Antiques

  4. RetailGuru says:

    This is going to go through and be permitted, I strongly suspect. This’ll make Stanwell Road “Fast food and Charity” alley!

  5. 92 and a social butterfly says:

    Oh dear, a newly elected council and they allow a pizza outlet almost next to Subway and I agree it’s a parking issue, especially for people dropping off stuff at the Red Cross shop.

  6. Me says:

    Isn’t there a rear access point to these buildings and dedicated car park?

  7. Mrs Tumble says:

    I don’t know why they need to be in town centre – their last application said they had very low footfall and vast majority was online/ phone orders – if that is true out of town unit would suit them better – surprised landlord allowing two virtually identical businesses only doors away from each other – certainly not good idea

  8. P. Grove says:

    We really do not need another food outlet in Penarth.

  9. Frederick says:

    “There would be external alterations and a new ventilation and extraction system installed. A new customer entrance door would be installed in the existing entrance doorway.”
    In other words, expect to see a garish uPVC hoarding hiding the current distinctive glass frontage, further contributing to Penarth’s aspiration to look like any old street in any old town.
    Never mind, at least it will mean food for the town’s population…with the dearth of eateries here, people must be staaaaarving.

  10. Chris David says:

    Despite the merits, de-merits I personally prefer Welsh Rarebit, cheese on toast and Croque Monsieur. I have a suspicion its all about laziness- how can a fast food / frozen Pizza beat any of these?
